2020, POGGIO Alle Gazze Dell Ornellaia Toscana, Blanc


Blend: Sauvignon Blanc, Vermentino, Viognier, Verdicchio.

The 2020 Poggio Alle Gazze (69% Sauvignon Blanc, 22% Vermentino, 5% Viogner, 4% Verdicchio) is a bright, aromatic white to drink now and over the next few years. White flowers, sage, mint, pear and citrus are all finely delineated. There’s great energy and focus. The Sauvignon Blanc is quite expressive in the 2020. 92 Antonio Galloni

Sauvignon Blanc dominant on the nose, with a flick of gunsmoke reduction. Great pace and momentum through the palate, this is mouthwatering and seductive, layering brambled gooseberry with citrus and safe alongside slate salinity. So easy to recommend this white wine from director Axel Heinz and oenologist Olga Fusari. 25% new oak, blend at the end of ageing. 12 months in bottle before release. 93 Jane Anson.

Lovely refined aromas, elderflower, peach, apricot, some white flowers and gently bitter orange rind. I love the texture here, smooth and succulent, a very satisfying weight - bright with such aromatic intensity. Body and texture here, a good food wine, with acidity giving lemon and lime touches and a clarity left on the tongue towards the finish. Very appealing. 93 Georgina Hindle, Decanter Magazine.

“With its classic bright straw-yellow colour, Poggio alle Gazze dell'Ornellaia 2020 expresses itself on the nose with a beautiful aromatic intensity: aromas of boxwood and white flowers, accompanied by notes of white peach, sage and aromatic herbs are all released once poured. The wine fills the palate with elegance and determination upon tasting, revealing the proper balance of acidic freshness and density. The finish is lively, persistent and with a nice tanginess." Olga Fusari - Winemaker - May 2021.
