...an integrated and seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot...The bouquet is very developed in terms of aromas this year with beautiful notes of dark fruit, tobacco and spice. Those perfumes are just gorgeous. The mouthfeel is similarly intense with tannins that are still young, but are already silky and linear in nature. This vintage promises a long aging future. eRobertParker.com

Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia 2013: from Jay. Initial thoughts/impressions from a brief tasting conducted this afternoon. Deep ruby colour. Dark fruits, cedar tobacco box wrapper and brown spice dominate a delightful nose with a hint of torrefaction. The wine has a subtle attack across the palate but then builds across the mid palate. This is not the dense and intense super Tuscan style we have often seen over the last 20 odd years but a more nuanced wine with tannins which, at this stage, are far greater along in their path to integration. There is certainly a feeling of balance here. 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot. 94/100. Drink 2020 to 2040.

Welcome to Friday and it looks like a beautiful weekend. The wine today is the 2013 Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore. I have been waiting a long time to try an Ornellaia it has lived up to my expectations. This wine is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. On the nose is dark fruit, black cherry, plum, blackberry, graphite, violets and spice. On the palate is a fully integrated wine with black cherry, raspberry, cassis, cedar box, some tobacco, and spice. There is medium + acidity, silky smooth full body mouth feel with firm intense tannins. The wine rounds out with a long beautiful finish. I was definitely delighted and not disappointed with this wine. Please have a safe and enjoyable weekend. Nostrovia!

Smells "classy" with ripe plums, dark berries set amongst some high quality cedar oak and a touch of floral and greenery coming through too. Quite plush on the palate, with the structural components well integrated, it's just about good to go now but will do well in the cellar too. The sort of wine that would appeal to the majority.

As wonderful as it was to the the 2013 Ornellaia, I look forward to doing so again in a decade. Super tight, this wine needs time. Polished, intense, dark and elegant, it's delicious now but will only get better.

Mer fatkaraktär än föregående. Granngård till Sassicaia men senare skörd ger mer sötare frukt å 14%. Mer tillgänglig redan nu. Mycket fylligt. Vanilj, mörk frukt.

A little too early for my taste but 10000 times better than the pinot.

I'd give this wine 9.1. It definitely is a little lighter than a true Bordeaux but retains a long finish.
