Ornellaia 2011


by Robert Sleigh | 08 October 2014

 
 

A GOLDEN YEAR FOR ORNELLAIA

We have just received our allocation of Ornellaia 2011, an outstanding vintage which in future years will be compared to the superb 2001 and 2006. Having tasted the wines we are convinced that this set of wines are among the finest Ornellaia has produced (tasting notes are below).

 

Uniquely this year, for Ornellaia itself, one bottle in each case of six bottles has a golden label. This collector's piece will only be available this vintage and is expected to be extremely popular.

 

THE WINES

Ornellaia 2011: A nose of dark, glossy fruits gives way to a rich, expansive mouthfeel. The flavours are detailed and the fruit ripe and succulent. There is plenty of tannin but it is all ripe, reflecting the nature of this excellent vintage. This wine will last for decades to come and only improve with time. HK$1680/bt

 

  • Please note: if you are interested in acquiring a golden label Ornellaia, you will need to purchase a full case of six; we are not selling these bottles separately.
Le Serre Nuove 2011: This blend is majority Merlot and has a distinctly Tuscan nose of dark cherry and spice. There is real class and complexity here; this is very impressive for a second wine. HK$548/bt

Le Volte 2011: The third wine of Ornellaia -Inviting cassis based nose with a slightly warm climate rustiness. Very well balanced, plush palate of dark fruits with a touch of liquorice. Excellent structure. Serious wine that would benefit from decanting at this early stage. A great introduction to Ornellaia. 92 Pte. HK$248/bt
