Heiner Lobenberg über:
Ornellaia 2020


Lobenberg: Ornellaia, der nach Sassicaia zweite ganz große Maremma-Wein, 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. 97-98+/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Ornellaia

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2020 Ornellaia is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, raised in 70% new French oak for 18 months, with another 12 months in bottle prior to release. Flush with herbs and menthol, blackberry, and cedar, it is full bodied and fills the sides of the mouth with rounded fruit of luxurious plum, black cherry, and toast, with supple and velvety tannins. Drink 2026-2046. 96/100


Decanter über: Ornellaia

-- Decanter: Estate director Axel Heinz called 2020 ‘a classic Ornellaia,’ and picked the theme of ‘La Proporzione‘ (proportion) to describe its character. Indeed, the blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot marks a return to a more typical blend following the pendulum swings of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon in 2019, and 51% Merlot in 2018. Fine-grained and beautifully textured, its finely integrated tannins support a concentration of black fruits lightened by red berries. Aromas of black cherry, liquorice, dark chocolate, cedar and damp earth make for a fragrant wine, accompanied by menthol and balsamic streaks which run through the wine and impart plenty of freshness. It finishes with a stony and salty element along with some chocolatey and woody hints. Tight and moreish, its ripeness of fruit combined with freshness and structure adeptly tells the story of this earlier-ripening vintage. It lacks complexity in the mouth – this will come with time – but the array of aromas gives a hint of what is to come. 96/100


Jane Anson über: Ornellaia

-- Jane Anson: An early harvest after a hot summer, this is luscious and enticing in texture. Jewel-ruby and violet-edged in colour, the plentiful vintage signature comes across in generosity and intensity of ripe fruit - raspberry, blueberry, sweet fig, spiced sandalwood, balsamic, bay leaf and mandarin zest giving focus and lift. All is texture and depth, ready to be loved. Clearly long ageing, as is always the case with Ornellaia, a little more open and generous than the 2019 was at the same stage. 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. Tasted twice. 96/100
