The 2008 Ornellaia continues to blossom in the bottle. Dark cherries, chocolate, espresso, blackberries and mocha are just some of the many notes that explode from the glass. A rich tapestry of licorice, tar and camphor notes develop in the glass, adding considerable complexity. The 2008 is a huge, structured Ornellaia endowed with massive structure. It has come together beautifully since the early days when it was a tannic beast. Readers who can be patient will be rewarded with a spectacular bottle of wine. This is a fabulous showing. Score: 97 points Antonio Galloni

Tasting Notes

The 2008 Ornellaia is an exceptionally refined, rich wine with powerful and complex aromas of black berries, prunes and ripe cherries with notes of apricots, dried citrus fruits, tobacco and Mediterranean herbs. The palate is multi-dimensional with layers of deep, dark fruit flavours intermingled with mineral notes and exotic spices. Fine, velvety tannins, and a racy finish, give an aristocratic poise and elegance to this very harmonious and attractive wine which has the potential to age for many years.
