Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC 2013

Blended Red from Italy - Tuscany
Review Date : 12-Feb-2017
Very dark, black-red colour, impenetrable, still youthful. The nose is very full and densely concentrated with very ripe black plum and blackberry fruit, the sweetness and ripeness quite remarkably poised without excess. Very powerfully presented with considerable fruit sweetness and richness, the fruit well-ripened, showing blackberry, plum and nuances of boysenberry nd casss liqueur. The palate is plush and near unctuous, and supported by very fine-grained tannin extraction. The palate has a surprisingly velvety flow for the power and dimension. Very fine acidity underlines the fruit and structure still. Wonderful wine that will keep a decade plus. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot, the wine aged 18 months in 70% new oak. 19.0/20 Feb 2017 RRP $295.00
