Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC 2005

Blended Red from Italy - Tuscany
Review Date : 12-Feb-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued red with some bricking on rim. The bouquet I very firm and solid with deeply packed aromas of black fruits melded with savoury secondary game and earth notes, and a little funkiness. Fulsome on palate with mouthfilling black berried and plummy fruits, this has complexing layers of liquorice, savoury game, earth, dried herbs and nuances of tertiary funkiness. The palate has sweetness and plenty of weight and presence, with matching structure and density. The tannins are beginning to resolve. The savoury meat and game flavours grow on the finish. Fully complex and still with much to carry it on. Another 6-8+ years. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the wine aged 18 months in 70% new oak. 18.5+/20 Feb 2017 RRP $N/A
