Rating
“The 2006s seemed a little more aromatic, with finer tannins and a racier, more refined character overall, while the 2007s were rich and powerful, with a riper and rounder mouthfeel. I think, if I remember correctly, the growing season was a little hotter in 2007 and the harvest for most producers was a little earlier. So that’s why they may seem a little more concentrated with riper tannins than the 2006.”

Wine maker notes
The vintage weather conditions encouraged the development of an Ornellaia which shows elegance and development of richly-faceted aromatics, with its classic dark, intense ruby colour. Fully-ripened fruit pervades the nose, with crisply-delineated dark wild berry fruit and spice, with balsamic notes. On the palate, exceptionally glossy, velvet-smooth tannins immediately impress, along with intense notes of fruit and spice. Good volume and depth contribute to an overall harmony of all its components, suitably crowned by a long-lingering finish infused with aromatic fruit and balsamic impressions and marked by a healthy vein of tannins that promise a long and salutary development.
