2011 Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Ornellaia (750ml)
A deep ruby in the glass, this wine bursts with dark red and black fruits, baking spices, mocha, and river rocks. Textured and classy, this ’12 reflects its warm, dry vintage in its appealing, open-knit personality, fine-grained tannins, silky mouth-feel and nearly infinite finish. Tenuta dell'Ornellaia vinfies each component grape and vineyard parcel separately, aging the wines in barriques for a year; then the components are blended, and the blend ages in barriques for six months before bottling and aging for another year. Nicknamed Incanto, or “enchantment,” by the estate, the ’12 Ornellaia testament for its seductive nose, enticing personality, and generous approachability.
