This vintage of Ornellaia is called Solare and represents the 12th edition in the estate's Vendemmia d'Artista series featuring artwork by Tom?s Saraceno. His beautiful art depicts a radiant sun halo and is intended as a symbol of sustainability. That theme of sunshine and warmth is particularly well suited to a vintage such as this. The Ornellaia 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is generous and fruit-forward with dense richness and concentration all driven by the smaller and more compact berry size that characterizes this dry, hot growing season. Black and purple fruits segue to spice, tobacco, leather and some of those beautiful Mediterranean notes of black olive and wild sage. These various moving pieces work together in perfect harmony. The tannins are beautifully managed here. If you consider the more astringent and rougher approach of the mid-tier Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia, this wine shows a whole other level of magnificent tannic management that could not have been easy given the diminutive berry size. This vintage sees a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 9% Cabernet Franc. The vineyard soils are characterized by reddish sand with calcareous rock. The wine is fermented in both stainless steel and cement and is transferred over to barrique to finish malolactic fermentation. It ages in barrique for 18 months followed by another 12 months in bottle. Some 150,000 bottles were released in April 2020.
Drink Date 2023 - 2045

The 2017 release of the Super Tuscan Ornellaia marks the 12th edition of Ornellaia Vendemmia d?Artista. In this collaboration, Argentinian contemporary artist Tom?s Saraceno interprets the character ?Solare? of Ornellaia 2017 in his label design, drawing inspiration from the planet?s most important source of energy ? the sun ? and inviting us to reflect on the reciprocal relationship between man and nature. Characterized by a year of sun and heat, Ornellaia 2017 is an intense and radiant wine with a sense of Mediterranean sumptuousness, generosity, welcoming. Each case of 6 contains a single bottle of the special Solare label.
