(2010 Vintage) On the nose, fruity, redolent of dark berries and a hint of vanilla and delicate roasted notes. The palate is beautifully dense, with finesse and flavor structure. Wonderfully elegant and silky.
The 2010 vintage marks Ornellaia's 25th Anniversary. In celebration, every bottle of Ornellaia 2010 is decorated with a special logo, silk-screened in gold and ivory. The 2010 vintage was one of the most elegant expressions of Ornellaia. The palate is finesse par excellence, with silky tannins and bright, clean-edged fruit, crowned with a finish boasting impressively racy tannins.

Wine Buyer(2006 Vintage) The main characteristic of Ornellaia 2006 is without a doubt its lush depth and a-exuberancea (aLaEsuberanzaa). Here is apowerful, concentrated wine whose intensity is immediately obvious. Its complex, rich bouquet is complemented bysweet, dense-packed tannins and a lively acidity, and all of its components are in admirable harmony creating a veryelegant wine.
