A landmark vintage that put Ornellaia on the trophy wine map. Thomas Duroux’s first (of three) vintages. Picked by hand and transported in small 15-kg boxes. Once in the cellar, the grapes were sorted by hand before undergoing destemming and gentle pressing. Fermentation took place in 65-hl and 125-hl wooden casks. Average temperature during fermentation was 27–30 °C. Malolactic fermentation in French oak barriques, and aged for 24 months at a controlled temperature. After bottling, the wine remained in the cellars for another 12 months before release.Rich yet fresh. Fully evolved and lovely balance; long. Great undertow. Sweet and inky with a light gamey note. Racy and vivacious. Very dramatic without being too opulent. Just not hot on the end. Axel Heinz sees it as a cross between Châteauneuf and Pomerol. Jancis Robinson
