The 2017 Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia has a bright straw yellow color, the nose carries outstanding citrus notes accompanied by hints of white flowers and boxwood. On the palate, it shows an excellent balance between freshness and persistence, closing in a long, lively and mineral finish.
Blend: 81% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Vermentino, 6% Viogner, 3% Verdicch
I love the nose here of honeysuckle, dried jasmine, daffodils, apricot pie and peach flan with some butterscotch undertones. Full-bodied and intense, but very precise in its delivery of sleek stone fruit and steely acidity.
Based on 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% each of Viognier and Vermentino, the 2017 Poggio alle Gazze dell'Ornellaia comes from a scorcher of a vintage and was aged in 25% new French oak, 25% in used barrels, and the balance in concrete. It offers a subtle tropical slant as well as classic Bordeaux Blanc-like citrus and pineapple notes. Medium to full-bodied, rich yet also elegant, it's a powerful white that has good concentration, plenty of acidity, and should age nicely for 4-5 years.
