Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, March 2010

    55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot The style of the wine is one of beguiling approachability and incredible charm. Dark, ripe cassis fruits dominate the nose, with complex notes of spice intermingled with wild herbs. Magnificent, ripe, blackberry fruit flavours are supported by firm yet incredibly smooth, rich tannins which gives this full bodied, yet elegant wine, an aristocratic quality. Intensely rich and harmonious, it is surprisingly expressive given its youth but there is no doubt that this wine has the potential to age for twenty years or more.

    The 2007 Ornellaia is a wine of texture above all else. What the 2007 lacks in aromatic intensity it more than makes up for with its sumptuous, generous personality. Silky and inviting, with soft contours and seemingly endless layers of dark red-fleshed fruit, the 2007 is absolutely delicious today.

Producer

Ornellaia

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is at the centre of the family of Super Tuscans. The established was in 1981 near the village of Bolgheri by Ludovico Antinori to rival his cousin's Sassicaia. This special area of the Tuscan coastline has the perfect maritime climate for growing Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The Masseto is made from 100% Merlot, and its silky smoothness have marked it out as a modern classic.

Region

Bolgheri

The medieval town of Bolgheri was originally made famous by the poet Giosuè Carducci who wrote about the stunning Cypress Avenue, a breathtaking and magical three mile long corridor of trees leading up to the entrance to the village. Swept away to the coastal and most westerly area of Tuscany, Bolgheri has become synonymous with wines known as ‘Super Tuscans'. Composed of classic Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc (intermixed with the occasional Sangiovese), the Super Tuscans began as mere experimentation in the 1960s and 70s. These international French varieties flourished in Bolgheri's warm, yet maritime climate which resulted in unexpected success and reknown. It is here that one finds such famous names as Ornellaia, Tignanello and Sassicaia.
