(2012 Vintage) To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Ornellaia has designed an exclusive logo with a pure gold silkscreened engraving, that dress only the few large format bottles of the 2005 vintage: Magnum (1.5 lt), Double Magnum (3 lt), Imperial (6 lt), and the unique Salmanazar bottle (9 lt.). The release for the sale on the market was in May 2008. Each large size bottle is placed in a single special wooden case created by an artisan from Bolgheri and accompanied by a special brochure. The Double Magnum & Imperial size bottles are individually numbered and contain a certificate confirming number of bottles bottled, bottling date and number of each specific bottle.
