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

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

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.

Drank at estate out of 3L. Like an outstanding '01 Bordeaux.

Would not have guessed this wine was 16 years old. Tasted so fresh and lively. Probably best Ornellaia I've had.
