Winemakers dinner with Ornellaia. Will certainly go into my 9.0+ scoring after some additional cellaring. Still somewhat closed

Preferred this much more than the super Tuscan Ornellaia.

Violet ruby center , pink rim and large tears . Lots of ripe black plum and cherry fruit. Fruit forward touch of spice . Pretty powerful on the palate , essence of black cherry, plum , touch of liquorice. There is also a touch of mineral and grafite , also , going back to this after a while In the glass. Fine big ripe tannins on finish , nice length , balanced acidity , touch of alcohol on the end . Too young at the moment , needs food really. An enjoyable wine no the less , and will have some 5 years of development ,at least ,ahead I would imagine .

Well-rounded and smooth on the palate, great texture and well balanced, with a robust fruitiness which ends with a fine finish with no sharp edges, freshened by balsamic notes.

The tannin came straight to me in a good way with blackberry and earth aromas. Best to keep for a few more years so the tannin will be soften.
