Slight scent of violets...
Ornellaia has been quite a discovery. The bouquet was something amazing, in which I could feel hints of saffron which are really something new to me in wine. The palate matches the nose, with a complexity which is really rare anywhere.
Two and a half glasses

Dunkles Purpurrot. Konzentriert die Nase. tiefgründig, Frucht kombiniert mit Kokos/Schokoladen-Aromen. Sehr satt, druckvoll und fruchtig am Gaumen. Der finessenreiche Wein zeigt sich bereits mit geschmeidigen Tanninen, herrlicher Länge mit viel Rückaromatik nach Cassis und noblem Eichholz.
Wine Spectator ReviewSubtle aromas of currant, coffee and blackberry, yet rather coarse on the palate just now. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Needs some time to mellow. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. To be released spring 2007. Best after 2009.Wine Tasting NotesOrnellaia is a wine that shows the great ripeness of the vintage through its abundant ripe fruit flavors, scents of exotic spices and a rich and generous texture. The important proportion of Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot add complex aromatics and freshness, producing a wine of great harmony and balance.
