Richly textured with layers of depth and fine length, the 2012 has an expansive aroma of black cherries and deep red berry fruits with hints of delicate spice, white truffles and dark chocolate. Succulent red berry fruits on the palate are followed by deeper richer flavours balanced by a refreshing mineral quality. A beautifully harmonious and multi-dimensional wine, it will age for twenty years or more. Drink 2020 to 2040.
Reviews & Scores
A tight and silky red with compacted fruit and tannin texture featuring blackcurrant, mushroom and bark undertones. Full body, firm tannins and a minerally finish. Excellent structure and mouthfeel. A cooler style of Ornellaia, bringing it back to the classicism of this celebrated region. Bordeaux blend. Better in 2018.
