OPUS-O'SHA

 

 

Only 4,5 and 5,0 NJP wines (Nenad Jelisic Points) are presented as the best vintages.

 

From October 2010, every time we update any information or write a new information, we shall write in parentheses when the update has last taken place e.g. (2010-10).

 

If for some wine stands behind the best vintages none, it means that the wine's price is too high for its quality or the wine's quality is too low.

 

 

Opus One (red dry blend wine; 77% to 97% Cabernet Sauvignon; the rest, varies from year to year, consists of/can consist of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot), Napa Valley AVA, North Coast, California, USA, the best vintages, until vintage 2003 none; 2004, 2005, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016; not 2017.

Ornellaia, an Italian DOC-wine that was first produced in 1985. The wine is considered as one of Italy's best, most expensive and most sought-after red wines. The wine's exceptional high quality is achieved by: all grapes are hand harvested, are transported in small 15 kg boxes, and undergo a double selection, and that each grape variety and vineyard lot are fermented separately, macerated for 10 to 15 days and then aged in 225 liter French oak barrels (70% new) for 20 months and 10 months in bottle. Ornellaia has a great aging potential. The strange thing is that the wine, a few years ago, belonged to the lowest Italian wine class (Vino da Tavola) due to use/s, for the wine region of Tuscany, then unapproved grapes (54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot were used for vintage 2008). The wine comes from the winery Tenuta dell'Ornellaia in Bolgheri. (2011-10)
