Tasting Notes

The cool start to the vintage followed by high temperatures have created a wonderfully complex structure, with generous, ripe fruit, overlaid with a beguiling aromatic complexity. Pure, rich fruit character, complemented by chocolate and balsamic notes, with herbs and zest lift out of the glass. The extra few percent of Cabernet Franc provide a perfect framework of elegance and minerality and the palate certainly does not disappoint, with a silky smooth texture and glossy tannins carrying a deliciously rich, yet elegant Ornellaia through to revitalising lively acidity and a lingering finish. Fantastic.

Reviews & Scores

An incredible, show-stopping blast of cassis greets you on the nose. The vanillin velvet texture on the palate is enchanting. Crème de cassis and coffee, smoke and roses. The tannins, and alcohol, are totally coveredby glycerol and opulence. Obviously, I should not be drinking this in 2012, but I do not regret it!
