2006 Bolgheri Superiore DOC Ornellaia, Tuscany, Italy

Deep nose, partly preserved black berries, cherries and some red berries, animal notes and some spicy oak, herbaceous and cool mineral notes in the background. Full-bodied and juicy on the palate, surprisingly cool in spite of the noticeable alcohol, dark fruit, elegant acid bite, fairly prominent, mouth-filling tannins, but only slightly astringent, some oak, very good persistence and depth, mineral backbone, still very young, long finish.
