Heiner Lobenberg über:
Ornellaia 2012


Lobenberg: Ornellaia könnte es blind mit einem großem Bordelaiser aufnehmen, keine Frage. Im Temperament bleibt er aber doch Italiener. Intensives Rot. Duftet nach vollreifen und frischen roten Früchten, leicht balsamisch, auch dezent neues Holz. Am Gaumen wohlstrukturiert, immens konzentriert. Bleibt sehr lange am Gaumen und besitzt diese feine Trüffelnote und Würze. Sehr geschliffen feines Tannin. 95+/100


Suckling über: Ornellaia

-- Suckling: A tight and silky red with compacted fruit and tannin texture featuring blackcurrant, mushroom and bark undertones. Full body, firm tannins and a minerally finish. Excellent structure and mouthfeel. A cooler style of Ornellaia, bringing it back to the classicism of this celebrated region. Bordeaux blend. Better in 2018. 97/100


Galloni über: Ornellaia

-- Galloni: The 2012 Ornellaia has put on quite a bit of weight since I first tasted it from bottle a few months ago. Rich, powerful and concentrated, the 2012 offers plenty of depth and intensity, with expressive fruit and striking mid-palate intensity. Dark red cherry jam, wild flowers, licorice, smoke, tobacco and mint blossom in the glass. There is a very slight element of dryness in the tannin that is the signature of a year in which ripening took place in fits and starts. It will be interesting to see if that note softens over time. 94+/100


Parker über: Ornellaia

-- Parker: The 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is very similar to the 2011 Ornellaia that precedes it. These were both hot vintages, but 2012 saw the heat towards the end of the growing season. In fact the harvest in 2012 came two weeks earlier than average. This seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (27%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (7%) shows some of the roundness and softness of that summer heat. The wine's density and extraction are spot-on and the bouquet is beautifully shaped by dark cherry nuances with spice, leather and tobacco at the back. There is a gorgeous sense of richness and plushness here. Some 160,000 bottles were produced. This edition of Ornellaia is more immediate in character and less suited to the decades-long aging that cooler vintages can affront so successfully. 94/100


Gambero Rosso über: Ornellaia

-- Gambero Rosso: A grand wine that is already legible, with body worthy of its name, capable of unfolding in a mouthful that is as complex it is deep. 3/3 Gläser
