WA 92 WS 89 Pts - Accordingt to Wine Advocate - The 2010 Ornello flows with the essence of dried herbs, mint, tobacco, licorice and plums. Deceptively medium in body, this juicy wine impresses for its length and silky, polished personality. Ornello is the most recent addition to the estate’s lineup, but it has quickly established itself as one of the highlights in the range. In 2010 Ornello is a blend of 40% Sangioveto, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 20% Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
According to Wine Spectator - A balanced red, with black cherry and blackberry flavors matching the juicy texture and moderately firm structure. Just needs a few months to settle down. Fine length. Best from 2013 through 2019.
Winemakers Notes - The “Maremma cowboy”, a symbol of elegance and strength typical of the earth of Maremma. Still today Ornello is the name of the lance wood used to move the cattle. The only one blended with Syrah. Balsamic notes and roasted coffee at the nose and a full and rich wine with a nice elegance and freshness, typical of Rocca di Frassinello style.13.5% ABV. Rated 90+
