2011 je bila sunčana i suva, bez mnogo padavina sto je uslovilo da groždje nešto ranije sazri, a samim tim i raniju berbu nego sto je to uobičajeno.
2011 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia je vino intezivne, rubin crvene boje. Vino pokazuje neverovatnu koncentraciju aroma, tamne trešnje, crne čokolade, nane, ruzmarina, egzotičnih začina. Vino je punog tela, fenomenalne dubine, moćno i snažno sa prijatnim, zrelim taninima. Izrazito duge završnice, ali i dalje sveže i mlado.
Još jedno veliko vino iz ove renomirane vinarije, oduševiće i one koji odluče da ga probaju sada, kao i one koji imaju strpljenja na sačekaju. Najbolje od 2017-2035 godine.
Cabernet Sauvignon 51%, Merlot 32%, Cabernet Franc 11%, Petit Verdot 6%
This shows incredible concentration with dark-berry, dark-chocolate, mint and rosemary character. Full body with a superb depth of fruit and polished tannins. It's chewy but caressing. This needs at least four or five years to come around. Powerful and intense. Yet it remains fresh and bright.

The 2011 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia lives up to the legacy of this important wine, thanks to its extreme intensity and its skillfully crafted bouquet. The excellent quality of fruit stands clear, despite the heat of the vintage, with pristine notes of dark cherry, exotic spice and chocolate. This expression of Ornellaia is composed of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. The results are nothing short of exuberant and this vintage will reward both those who decided to drink it early, as well as those who have the patience to wait. The only slight ruffle in this otherwise gorgeous presentation is the 2011 tannin that feels a touch aggressive. For that reason, its probably better to put the wine aside in your cellar.

Another impressive effort from the celebrated Ornellaia estate. it opens with aromas of black berries, plum, blue flower and hints of balsamic herbs. The rich palate delivers a core of fleshy black cherry accented with notes of licorice, black pepper and mocha alongside bracing but refined tannins. It’s still young so give it time to fully develop.

A dark and inky red, featuring violet, black currant, cedar, sandalwood and iron aromas and flavors. Nonetheless, this comes across as elegant, even as the tannins prove formidable on the finish. A terrific young wine in the making. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2035.
