Natalie's Score: 99/100

From the Bolgheri wine region in Tuscany, Ornellaia 2021 is a rounded and full-bodied red wine blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. The wine was aged in French oak barrels (70% new). A beautifully crafted wine from an excellent vintage, rich, concentrated and powerful with ripe dark fruits, mocha, espresso, dried herbs, anise and well-integrated oak spice flavours smooth and supple on the palate, it is ready to drink now, but will show its best from 2027 through 2050. The "La Generosità" label was designed by Marinella Senatore for the 16th edition of Ornellaia.

Food pairings: wild boar roast, grilled venison steak, roast saddle of rabbit.
