...sumptuous...really impressive in stylistic precision, detailed oaky component and wonderful fruity extract...very readable, with a body worthy of its name, unfolding in a flavor as complex as it is deep...
A tight & silky red... blackcurrant, mushroom & bark undertones. Full body, firm tannins & a minerally finish. Excellent structure & mouthfeel. A cooler style of Ornellaia, bringing it back to the classicism of this celebrated region.
The wine's density and extraction are spot-on and the bouquet is beautifully shaped by dark cherry nuances with spice, leather and tobacco at the back. There is a gorgeous sense of richness and plushness here.
Rich, powerful and concentrated, the 2012 offers plenty of depth and intensity, with expressive fruit and striking mid-palate intensity. Dark red cherry jam, wild flowers, licorice, smoke, tobacco and mint blossom in the glass.
Big, sweet and appealing with tea leaf aromas and lift. Opulent, sweet-fruited and velvety-textured.
