Who could resist a white from Ornellaia? Not me. They said there’s some Viognier in here with the SB and that makes sense. The exotic fruit surrounded a core of citrus and white floral elements. Nice.

The estate's 2015 Poggio alle Gazze is a very pretty, supple white to drink now and over the next few years while the orchard fruit, lime and floral notes retain a measure of brightness. The 2015 has a degree of mid-palate texture, richness and exoticism that is not typical of recent editions of this wine. Some of that may be attributable to the higher percentage of Viognier in 2015. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2018)

This is a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc. This is a grape I typically do not like but this was one of the best I’ve had.
