Ornellaia Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep crimson. The funny thing is that this wine smells first and foremost<br/>Tuscan rather than like the Bordeaux blend that it is. A good<br/>thing! Very savoury with real tang and I could swear there was some<br/>Sangiovese in here. Zings with life but there is no obvious sweetness at all<br/>(cf its stablemate Masseto). Great, glamorous life and<br/>concentration. The alcohol is very well hidden. Tannins are clearly<br/>there but are all but completely hidden by the ripe but savoury fruit. The<br/>overall balance is definitely helped by the defiantly high acidity. <br/>Delicious young wine that should age beautifully. <br/>(Jancis Robinson - jancisrobinson.com - 06-Dec-2009)

The 2006 Ornellaia flows from the glass in a profound expression of ripe, dark fruit. With time in the glass layers of minerals, cassis, tar, sweet herbs and French oak emerge, adding further complexity. This harmonious Ornellaia combines the richnes... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
