Tenuta Dell Ornellaia 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.]
