Ornellaia Bolgheri Superior 2006

The wine is a deep ruby with black tints, a small narrow rim, aromas of dark red fruits, spice and cedar fill the glass. Dark cherry is the pervading aroma and is again present on the palate matched with spicy vanilla, balsamic and a savoury edge, the tannins are fine, silky and ripe, they add structure and enjoyment to the balanced and silky wine, the acidity keeping the well ripened fruits fresh even after 5 years.

Oak ageing is a factor in its history (70% new oak and 30% used once) and Malolactic fermentation takes place within barrel. Aged in barrel for 18months, blended after the first 12, then aged in bottle for 12 months+. This wine has the complexity and structure to allow it to age for quite a few years.
