Tenuta dell`Ornellaia `Ornellaia` 2009, 750mL (JS96, WA97) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Tenuta dell`Ornellaia `Ornellaia`

750mL

Vintage: 2009
Region: Italy
Appellation: Bolgheri

JS96, WA97
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2009 Ornellaia caresses the palate with layers of seamless, radiant fruit. Sweet red berries, mocha, flowers, new leather and spices are some of the many notes that are layered in this sumptuous, totally beautiful wine. The 2009 stands out for its silky tannins and phenomenal overall balance. This is one of those wines that will probably enjoy a long drinking window. There is little question the ability to blend grape varieties was a huge help in this vintage. In my opinion, that is the main reason Ornellaia is a slightly more complete wine than Masseto in 2009. In one of my blind tastings, the 2009 made a very eloquent case for itself as the wine of the vintage. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. In 2009 winemaker Axel Heinz used the highest percentage of Cabernet Franc ever in Ornellaia and gave the wine less time in oak, both with the goal of preserving as much freshness as possible. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `The 2009 vintage was not easy at Tenuta dell`Ornellaia because of the scorching hot summer. Readers may want to take a look at my video interview with Axel Heinz for more on the 2009 vintage.`
