Ornellaia is a blend of nature and musing. Complex ancient soils converse through human wisdom with a delicate microclimate that is echoed and reflected in the Mediterranean Sea. Prolonged ageing accompanies the estate’s fine wine in achieving its utmost expression, revealing finesse and generosity over time.
“This generous wine displays a particularly enticing character. The concentration that defines top vintages is not lacking, but the 2012 conceals it behind a sumptuous body with a long-lasting finish.”
Ornellaia 2012. L’Incanto
Artist John Armleder was invited to interpret the character of the 2012 vintage for the Vendemmia d’Artista project. In addition to creating a site-specific work, he styled a series of large-format bottles with his art. Furthermore, for the Bordeaux bottle, the artist designed a limited-edition label alongside the traditional label. One “L’Incanto” artistic label can be found in every case containing six 750ml bottles of Ornellaia 2012.
