Tasting Notes


Fruit and complexity as well as freshness and richness. Beautiful nose with extraordinary aromas of prunes, licorice, and dried flowers with rosemary undertones. Full-bodied and velvety textured. So beautiful to drink now, but obviously has a long future ahead.


Dark ruby red. Shows intense blackberry, currant, fresh herb and mineral character on the nose. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Still young and powerful.

The Winery

Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia

Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia is a Super-Tuscan estate established in 1981 by the celebrated Antinori family. The estate’s 200 planted acres along the Tuscan coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea produce some of Italy’s most superior Bordeaux style varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Ornellaia has developed into one of Italy’s most interesting, exciting and collectable wines. Their philosophy of “quality without compromise” is expressed through the entire winemaking process, attention is paid to every detail, from hand harvesting to the aging process. Ornellaia wines are complex, balanced, and intriguing.
