Natalie's Score: 96/100

2005 was the 20th vintage of Ornellaia. Lovely depth and complexity with layers of blackcurrant and dark plums. Silky tannins and a gorgeous mouth-feel: sit back and savor it. Long finish.

Food pairings: garlic casserole, prime rib, hard cheeses, hamburgers, pork tenderloin.

Jessica Hishon rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

After having tasted the 1998 and 2001 Ornellaia, the 2005 Ornellaia is noticeably the most fruit forward of the above mentioned. On the palate, it has flavours of dusty red and black fruit with a bit of heat on the finish. Overall, a wonderfully balanced wine and would pair well with any carnivorous meal.
