(From 2012 Vintage) To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Ornellaia has designed an exclusive logo with a pure gold silkscreened engraving, that dress only the few large format bottles of the 2005 vintage: Magnum (1.5 lt), Double Magnum (3 lt), Imperial (6 lt), and the unique Salmanazar bottle (9 lt.). The release for the sale on the market was in May 2008. Each large size bottle is placed in a single special wooden case created by an artisan from Bolgheri and accompanied by a special brochure. The Double Magnum & Imperial size bottles are individually numbered and contain a certificate confirming number of bottles bottled, bottling date and number of each specific bottle.
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 & Spirits(From 2005 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09 This feels closed and reticent at first, a muddle of aromas and flavor. It gains definition with air, leading with black cherry and ripe fig flavors backed by savory, slightly herbaceous tannins. Cellar it for eight years and then decant for a grilled ribeye.
