"The Ornellaia 2018 Poggio alle Gazze dell'Ornellaia is a blend of 83% Sauvignon Blanc, 11% Vermentino and 6% Viognier. The wine pours from the bottle with a light golden hue and produces aromas of stone fruit, Golden Delicious apple and honeydew melon. To me, this vintage doesn't quite have the vibrant, tonic zest that we've seen previously, like in the 2016 edition. The sparkle is there, but it doesn't shine as bright perhaps because the richness of the Viognier seems to shows more weight here. The wine is fermented in new and used barrique (for about 50% of the the total), and stainless steel and cement are used for the other half. No malolactic fermentation occurs. The wine then goes into wood for six months. Some 35,000 bottles were made, and this vintage was released in March 2020." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Poggio alle Gazze brings together the natural richness of the year with the lift of Sauvignon Blanc. Orchard fruit, lime, mint and white flowers add brightness to this impeccably balanced, refreshing white from Tenuta dell' Ornellaia. The blend is 81% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Vermentino, 6% Viogner and 3% Verdicchio. Drink it over the next few years." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"This expressive white exudes peach, gooseberry, sage and white pepper flavors, backed by lively acidity and finishing with a saline accent. Sauvignon Blanc, Vermentino, Viognier and Verdicchio. Drink now through 2024. 300 cases imported." Wine Spectator
