Tasting Notes

Special Labels - For the ‘Exuberance’ (L’Esuberanza) of Ornellaia 2006, Luigi Ontani has designed an exclusive label which dresses an extremely limited number of large size bottles of Ornellaia 2006: 100 double Magnums (3 litres), 20 Imperials (6 litres) and a unique Salmanazar bottle (9 litres). Luigi Ontani has dedicated a different colour to each format, and every bottle is individually numbered and personally signed by him. The design of the label features four faces hidden by the artist’s calligraphy, depicting the theme of the seasons, and the surrounding decorative leaves create letters that compose the words ‘Ornellaia Esuberanza’.

Wine Advocate:

The 2006 Ornellaia flows from the glass in a profound expression of ripe, dark fruit. With time in the glass layers of minerals, cassis, tar, sweet herbs and French oak emerge, adding further complexity. This harmonious Ornellaia combines the richness of the vintage with superb freshness and awesome balance. Today the wine's sheer density almost manages to hide the tannins, but they are there, and the wine will ultimately benefit from a few years in the cellar. The 2006 Ornellaia is one of the highlights of this sensational Tuscan vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
