Jane Anson über: Ornellaia

-- Jane Anson: Charred caramel and liquorice aromatics, with sappy acidity accompanying generous olive tapenade, blackberry and raspberry fruits on the opening beats. Deceptively silky tannins, they are tactile and supple at first then close in through the mid palate, revealing a more serious Ornellaia with layers of graphite, savoury cassis, sage, bay leaf, underbrush and white truffle spices. A touch of sweet salted caramel returns after half an hour in the glass, this is well structured and will be giving its best after five or six years in bottle, and for several decades. A hot dry summer followed by cooler weather during harvest has given finesse and complexity, and a wine to savour. All varieties are aged separately for 12 months then blended and then put back in barrel for 6 months, followed by 12 months in bottle. 70% new oak. Director Axel Heinz, oenologist Olga Fusari. 98/100

Falstaff über: Ornellaia

-- Falstaff: Sattes Rubin-Violett. Sehr vielschichtige Nase mit Noten nach Brombeere, Cassis und Holunderbeere, dann feine Gewürze, etwas Zimt, Kardamom und Zedernholz. Geschliffen und fein am Gaumen, öffnet sich mit viel feinmaschigem Tannin, reife Beerenfrucht, im hinteren Bereich ein Feuerwerk an Gewürzen, feiner Fruchtschmelz. 98/100

Galloni über: Ornellaia

-- Galloni: The 2019 Ornellaia is one of the most elegant wines I have ever tasted here. All the elements are so well-balanced. Dark and racy, with fabulous class and pedigree to burn, the 2019 is superb from the very first taste. Dark plum, mocha, new leather, licorice and spice build over time, but it is the wine’s stunning finesse that impresses most. The 2019 has the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon since the 2002. That very much comes through in the wine’s vibrancy and aromatic presence. 97+/100

Weinwisser über: Ornellaia

-- Weinwisser: Dieser Ornellaia besticht schon im Duft mit einem eher kühlen, eleganten Bouquet, also eher im vornehmem Bordeaux-Style statt wie früher „kalifornisch“. Dabei bleibt er seiner extrem würzig-ätherischen Ader mit herrlich mediterraner Macchia, balsamischen Noten und reifen roten und blauen Früchten treu, ist aber in der Anmutung eher auf Eleganz und Frische aus als auf Konzentration und Druck. Am Gaumen enorm saftig mit prägnanter Dichte und zupackenden, aber hoch elaborierten, engmaschigen Tanninen, eine feine Säure lässt ihn seidig-elegant und doch auch lebendig wirken. Das erinnert nicht nur Axel Heinz an 2015 und 2007. 19+/20

Suckling über: Ornellaia

-- Suckling: The aromas of blackcurrants, fresh basil and thyme, as well as cedar and sandalwood are so attractive. It’s full-bodied and very linear with tight tannins that draw you down the length of this young wine. Wet-earth and cool-stone undertones. It’s solid and so structured. A classic Ornellaia for the cellar. Try after 2027. 97/100

Parker über: Ornellaia

-- Parker: This is a beautiful expression of coastal Tuscany and the sunny Mediterranean. The Ornellaia 2019 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia (a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot) pours from the bottle with a specific darkness that has elements of both inky saturation and ruby highlights. The wine is saturated and rich—this is something you notice off the bat—but it also reveals a pleasing lightness or grace that is transmitted to both the bouquet and the palate. Dark fruit, pressed blackberry and plum mingle with more substantial aromas of spice, leather and sweetly cured tobacco. The tannins are beautifully managed, and the wine sports considerable heft and density on the palate that drives a very long and pleasurable mouthfeel. 97/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Ornellaia

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2,000-case 2019 Ornellaia checks in as a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc. It's a gorgeous wine in every facet, offering a translucent ruby hue as well as a gorgeous bouquet of redcurrants, black cherries, tobacco, dried herbs, and loamy earth. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has remarkable purity as well as depth, spot-on balance, ripe, building, yet perfectly integrated tannins, and a great, great finish. This is a wonderfully complete, balanced, ripe yet elegant Ornellaia that will cruise for 30+ years in cold cellars. 97/100

Winespectator über: Ornellaia

-- Winespectator: A youthful red, concentrated and balanced, with blackberry, plum, earth and spice flavors gaining lift from the vibrant structure, while tannins envelop the lively fruit components. The finish is shored up by fine-grained tannins. This has all the components in the right place. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2025 through 2043. 96/100
