Holding up really well with red fruit behind a bit of barnyard. Delicious, but not too much charachter.

Exceptional #FilthyOldVino! Varietal typicity is often used to assess the quality of a wine eg Does it taste like a Cabernet? My response "I don't care! Is it a good wine?" This Ornellaia doesn't taste like Cabernet, but, damn, it was wine of the night amongst some serious competition @anthdanna Italian Wine Dinner on Thursday! Poised, balanced, layered, the complexity you get from well aged exceptional wine! #yumminesshasnolimits #Wine #RealWine #Ornellaia #SuperTuscan

Beautiful wine! Nose of licorice, graphite with a touch of peanut oil. Very elegant with a silky texture. I will be looking for more of this wine.
