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.

International Wine Cellar(1990 Vintage) Good fresh deep red. Knockout nose combines black fruits, tar, mocha and humus. A hugely concentrated, sweet wine with great richness of fruit and extract. The first vintage of Ornellaia to reach 14% alcohol, and it shows in the wine's compelling thickness. Far from the subtlest wine in the range, but ripe acidity and big, sweet tannins give it plenty of verve and grip. Today, I find this wine fresher and a bit more detailed than the estate's 2000. A monumental wine today, but this could still us...
