The blackberry and blueberry aromas with fresh sage and bay-leaf character are impressive. Stone, graphite and mineral undertones. Full-bodied and silky and refined tannins. Dusty. Elegance and polish. Shows greatness in strength and refinement. A dialed-in, dialed-back Ornellaia. - James Suckling Ornellaia is now a classic and was one of the first of the Super Tuscans – modern wines made in Tuscany using French grape varieties. It is the equal of many a great Bordeaux. A blend of Bordeaux grape varieties cultivated on varied terroirs which, once blended, contribute to the complexity of the wine. After a period of aging, it gives off a rich variety of aromas: ripe black fruits lifted by hints of vanilla, smoky and spiced notes. The wine is opulent, round and generous, enveloping the palate with its flavours of black olives.

The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a dark, exuberant and opulent wine that is teeming with flavor, ripeness and extract. That said, there is also a note of impurity that I only really locked in on when I went back to taste the wine at different time intervals later in the day and the next. To be clear, it was there upon first examination, but then it blew off. And then it came back. That game of hide and seek proved distracting and puzzling. I wondered if it was cork or barrel, although it did not behave like any of those things, and my doubt is recorded by the question mark next to my score. Once you get past that little blemish, you are instantly aware of the beauty and depth of the vintage. The wine is savory in terms of aromas and sweet in terms of tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon flavors of dried blackberry, toasted espresso and cured tobacco play leading roles.
