Two beautiful wines ., as we poured them in the glasses Sammarco was very expressive while Ornellaia showed quite austere, compact and monolithic. Sammarco opened quickly with delicate scents of white flowers, rose petals, tobacco, minerals, olives, and a fresh vibrant mouth feel. Ornellaia stayed austere for at least 30 min, but then it started to wake up with timid notes of oriental spices, cider box, saddle leather, graphite, wild cherries, cassis and licorice. Suddenly Ornellaia intensity increases exponentially, with broader complexity, sweet tobacco, chocolate powder, mint, clove. Sammarco stayed stable with a lighter structure in a very pretty, elegant expressive state. After one hour Sammarco started to lose intensity, flattens a bit it's freshness and turns to a slight simplicity. At the end of the dinner, with just a little wine in the glass Ornellaia was still growing and increasing complexity. We should have had a magnum!
