The wine was open one day in advance, 2 glasses were consumed and then sealed back with a vacuum.

Ornellaia 2008

Dark red garnet color with purple hues. An intense, rich and developing nose, breathing youthfulness. A bit oaky, kaleidoscopic, the aromas shift from really ripe black fruits: blackberry, mulberry and blackcurrant to spices: cinnamon and anise, toasty oak and bits of eau de vie. It has depth and flesh in the mouth, smooth and ripe tannins, well balanced considering the high 15% alcohol, showing richness of flavors on the palate. Long finish, showing toast and ripe fruits. A wine that needs to spend more time in the bottle, made in a modern style. (93/100)
