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. 2019 - 2024

The 2017 Poggio alle Gazze dell'Ornellaia takes a back seat compared to the more exuberant, intense and complex vintage to come immediately before this. I tasted the 2016 and 2017 releases side by side. This wine offers a lower aromatic threshold with dried flower and summer grass. Generally speaking, the wine offers less fruit and more dryness that directly reflects the dusty heat of the 2017 summer season. You can almost taste that dry summer heat in this Sauvignon Blanc-driven blend of white grapes. The wine's mouthfeel texture is also considerably slimmed down. 2018 - 2020
