First wine of Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, it is a favourite amongst wine lovers. This Super Tuscan truly expresses its terroir and vintage and has achieved full ripeness for both sugar and tannins.
A tightly wound, powerful wine, the 2010 is going to need a few years in the cellar to show the full breadth of its potential and class.
The two Italian wines, the 2010 Ornellaia and 2009 Antinori Guado al Tasso Bolgheri, both performed brilliantly, holding their own against some heavy hitters from Bordeaux, Napa Valley and Australia. The sumptuous, rich 2010 Ornellaia offered lots of chocolate and berry fruit intermixed with hints of espresso roast and vanillin.- 96 pts Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette
