"Ornellaia 2012 appears a deep ruby, and a remarkably beguiling bouquet boasts rich fruit and spices notes. The palate shows well-rounded, full, and generous, with glossy tannins and a complete absence of any roughness. The 2012 lacks none of the proverbial concentration that distinguishes Ornellaia’s, great vintages, but this vintage adroitly masks that richness behind an expansive, magisterial structure, then concludes with a near-endless finish." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
2012 was a warm year, and the relative dryness at Tenuta dell'Ornellaia put the vines through their paces, producing a smaller harvest of very concentrated, aromatic berries. The Bordeaux varieties that make up this classic Super Tuscan got a real workout, giving us intense notes of red berry jam, tobacco, and lavender. Like the source fruit, this 2012 is sumptuous, deep, and intense, and like all new vintages of Ornellaia it asks for some hold time before opening.
"A tight and silky red with compacted fruit and tannin texture featuring blackcurrant, mushroom and bark undertones. Full body, firm tannins and a minerally finish. Excellent structure and mouthfeel. A cooler style of Ornellaia, bringing it back to the classicism of this celebrated region. Bordeaux blend. Better in 2018." —JamesSuckling.com
