Ornellaia Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

* *_HALF-BOTTLE_*One of the greats from this extraordinary estate."The 2009 Ornellaia caresses the palate with layers of seamless, radiant fruit. Sweet red berries, mocha, flowers, new leather and spices are some of the many notes that are layered in this *sumptuous, totally beautiful wine*.The 2009 stands out for its silky tannins and phenomenal overall balance. In one of my blind tastings, the 2009 made a very eloquent case for itself as *the wine of the vintage*. The highest percentage of Cabernet Franc ever in Ornellaia and gave the wine less time in oak, both with the goal of preserving as much freshness as possible."Edited from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate[55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.]

Full and juicy with black pepper and spice aromas and flavors. Very intense. Powerful but not heavy with lots of structure and backbone. The 25% of Petit Verdot in the blend gives the spicy character. Wait and see. James Suckling. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2009 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell Ornellaia 750ml

Very aromatic, featuring floral and leafy black currant scents that follow through to plum, iron and tar flavors. Bordeaux-like with a supple texture, yet also firmly structured, offering herb and spice notes on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot... Wine Spectator.

Shows aromas of ripe strawberry, with hints of green coffee bean. Medium-bodied, with soft, delicious fruit and a long finish. A juicy, fresh wine. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.

The 2007 Le Volte, Ornellaiarsquo;s entry-level wine, is especially opulent in this vintage. A soft, generous red, the wine offers terrific richness and depth in its ripe, perfumed fruit. Sweet scents of French oak linger on the long finish. This generous, seductive wine should continue to drink well over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2012.

Black cherry, blueberry and floral aromas and flavors highlight this rich red. Its ample flesh coats the tannins, but there's structure underneath. Fine length. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2012 through 2020.

Sehr schöner, gehaltvoller Rotwein der berühmten Tenuta dell'Ornellaia aus Bolgheri. Das Bouquet erinner an rote und schwarze Beeren und präsentiert sich enorm fruchtbetont. Im Gaumen dicht und gut strukturiert, angenehme Eichenholznoten sowie Kraft, Eleganz und Harmonie.
