I love Ornellaia. Amazing aromas of currants, blackberries, and hints of vanilla cream. Licorice too. Full bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and an amazing depth of fruit. Balanced and super long. I can't get over the wonderful texture to this young red. It touches every inch of your palate and caresses it...it's hard not to drink... James Suckling

Initial oxidized aromas blew off to reveal subtle ripe red and black fruits with violets and cigar box aromas. Firm mouth-filling chewy tannins. Delicious.

2008 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia - finally got to check this beautiful Frescobaldi Super Tuscan off my bucket list. 93-97/100 pts. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc & Petit Verdot. Dark cherry, blackberry & mocha intermingling with licorice, forest floor, herb & hints of tar. Medium bodied, bold and velvety, it keeps revealing new facets in the glass & lingers on the finish long enough to really contemplate it.
