94(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , August 2012

Deep ruby-red.  Multidimensional aromas of blackberry, iron, Oriental spices and cedar.  Very intensely flavored and suave, with a wonderfully silky texture over a firm underlying structure.  A hint of eucalyptus provides lift on the extremely long finish, which features building tannins and a violet nuance.  This is a remarkably suave Ornellaia, but it seems a little less concentrated than usual and comes across as almost too polished.  Maybe all it needs is a little time to put on more weight and develop greater complexity.
