Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Bolgheri Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

$315

Incredible class here, with ultrafine tannins and layers of currants, berries and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied, yet all in harmony and beauty. Beautifully sculptured. Excellent length...clearly classic. Best after 2005. Wine Spectator

Number 1,500 - I had dig out of the trash as wife thought I had a pic already Loved every single drop - amazing and full of smiles - a great 2001 vintage is holding up very well as this was the best Ornellaia I've ever had. Explosively bold and delicious yet extremely balanced all the way through. Perfect tannins and very long finish. I believe this bottle is entering the early stages of it's drinking window but still has 10 plus years - omg good

Both 2001s in a good place right now. Ornelaia a bit more concentration, Solaia more savoury

Another Ornellaia with ample bottle age that is just closed and intractable. Hello? Is anybody in there? Hello? I'm exaggerating a bit, it has some weight and stuffing but just very very tight.

Very elegant super Tuscan, but still has the rich concentration that you expect. Lots of black currant, chocolate and espresso with fine tannins and a prodigious finish.
