    November 13, 2019 - Slight brick rim, cherry red, dominating green pepper tomato vine, finishing on a silky sweet cherry note. The finish was better than the nose. This wine is at the cusp of starting its decline, I would urge everyone to start enjoying them before it’s too late. Drink now and over the following 5 years

    August 13, 2019 - very pleasant surprise in supposed off vintage. Ripe cassis on nose and also on palate, fruit feel a bit decadent/mature but still very much alive with a finessed feel that is sometimes missing from more contemporary versions of Ornellaia. Finishes with a leafy green-ish character like an old fashioned left bank of yesteryear. Excellent

    August 26, 2018 - Light red fruit in the aromatics. Sweet and sour cherries on the palate. Little or ni tannins detected. Light concentration allowed for effortlessly easy drinking.

    -- tasted non-blind over approx. one hour --

    From memory, this was on the delicate side of things. Probably at, or a bit past, peak. Very nice, but not a show-stopper.
