Notes From The Winemaker:
“The year 2017 will remain in history as one of the hottest and driest. The forewarning had been a particularly mild winter with temperatures three degrees above the seasonal average, with normal rainfall. As a result, budbreak occurred almost two weeks earlier than usual. The vegetative cycle of the vineyards was accompanied by warm weather with little rainfall already as early as March, briefly interrupted by a sudden drop in temperatures at the end of April, which saw frosts in many areas of Tuscany. On the coast, thanks to the proximity of the sea, temperatures remained above zero, without creating any damage to the growing shoots. The heat and drought soon returned in May, limiting vegetative growth and bunch size, even though flowering had taken place in excellent conditions. July and August saw almost no rain and warm weather, fortunately cooled down by night-time temperatures. Given the climatic conditions and a low number of grapes, ripening occurred quickly, obliging us to carry out the earliest harvest in the history of Ornellaia, with the first bunches of Sauvignon picked on 7 August and ending with Vermentino and Verdicchio on 30 August.”

Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - James Suckling:
“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. Drink now.” - (November 7, 2019)
91 Points - Vinous Media:
“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.” -(August 2018) 90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
“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.” -BS (Web Only - 2019)
