2006 Tenuta Dell Ornellaia Ornellaia Bolgheri image

Wine Watch Review: Lots of fresh plowed black earth and soy espresso and dark chocolate toasty oak and a host of black currant cassis and black plum like fruit very complex. Big and chewy on the tongue with massive concentration and depth of black berry fruit with layers of spice fresh earth a very balanced finish with lots of acidity to hold everything in place a baby but has all the right stuff just need time. Finish 55 KILLER (97 Points) The 2006 Ornellaia flows from the glass in a profound expression of ripe, dark fruit. With time in the glass layers of minerals, cassis, tar, sweet herbs and French oak emerge, adding further complexity. This harmonious Ornellaia combines the richness of the vintage with superb freshness and awesome balance. Today the wine’s sheer density almost manages to hide the tannins, but they are there, and the wine will ultimately benefit from a few years in the cellar. The 2006 Ornellaia is one of the highlights of this sensational Tuscan vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. This set of new releases from Tenuta dell’Ornellaia leaves me looking for words that can adequately capture the pure magic and sheer profoundness the property has achieved in this important, hallmark vintage. I will try with one word: Monumental. The Ornellaia team led by Oenologist Axel Heinz and Agronomist/General Manager Leonardo Raspini has done a fabulous job with these wines, which have never failed to literally send shivers down my spine on the multiple occasions I have tasted them.
