    June 9, 2020 - Great wine, showing very well right now. Fruit has faded, but is still present so not in a negative way. Smooth tannins and powerful mid palate are at the fore. Just what one looks for in an aged ornellaia .

    June 7, 2020 - Good+ showing. Dark fruits, loamy earth, tobacco notes mixed with black berries, a note of vanilla. Med+ body, rather flowing in nature, with gentle layers, and a med+ persistence. Not sure I'd be holding these too much longer as there's a lot to enjoy now. That said, it'll hold here for several more years. Really nice over 3 hours. recommended

    May 30, 2020 - Although the only fruit on the nose was black cherry, the wine still possessed a smooth, complex mouthfeel and no hint that the wine was past its prime.

    (Ornellaia (Bolgheri)) A great depth of youthful colour here, and a wealth of fabulously precise, nervous fruit on the nose, showing some exotic complexity. There's a suggestion of richness and depth. A fine presence on the palate, which has structure, and elegant texture, and a finely poised, graceful and sinuous balance. Great finesse is the hallmark of this wine, carrying some fine fruit. Excellent potential. Will undoubtedly improve in the cellar for 5-8 years.
