TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA 'Ornellaia' 2011

The 2011 Ornellaia is absolutely striking, demonstrating a perfect balance between power and finesse. It displays a gorgeous dark color and offers seductive aromas of freshly crushed dark cherries and black currants followed by graphite, crushed violets, toasted hazelnut and a hint of fresh herbs. It possesses a gorgeous full, seamless texture with remarkable depth and focus, ending in a layered finish that carries on and on. Although this is already offering so much, it only begins to express its potential after extended hours of air contact. Ultimately, this is an age worthy Ornellaia that will be even better with time. The final blend was composed of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 11 Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. (Best 2016-2033) - June, 2014 (JD)
