Reviews

“A decadent red, with loads of tobacco, cherry and meat aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and long rich aftertaste.” Wine Spectator

“...this Ornellaia has been one of my favourite Super-Tuscans ever since I first tasted in blind almost a decade ago. A very deep colour. The nose remains stubbornly backward considering its age, but left in the glass to breath, it develops some gorgeous ripe plum, cassis and glycerin notes. The palate is medium-bodied with that lush, silky, sensuous texture; essentially a Bordeaux with Mediterranean exoticism. It has an irresistible sense of purity with rounded lush black fruits, black olive and even a touch of honey on the long finish. An outstanding wine.” eRobertParker.com
