Wine Spectator: 96
"2001 Wine Spectator Top 100 Rank #1. A cool and sleek Tuscan red, with tarragon and fresh sage aromas, blackberry and cherry undertones. Full-bodied, with a wonderfully silky palate of fine tannins and a long, fruity finish. Very sophisticated and reserved." (Nov 2001)

 

IWC: 94
" Saturated, bright ruby-red. Great nose offers a full range of aromas - cassis, raspberry, bitter chocolate, licorice, Asian spices. Dense, lush and sweet; a superripe Ornellaia that almost miraculously remains elegant. The raspberry and chocolate character follows through in the mouth. Finishes very fresh, with big, broad, chocolatey tannins and a late note of leather. Turned a bit more tannic with aeration, but this is still a rather feminine style of Ornellaia. This vintage offered perfect conditions. Noted Duroux: a hot August, and dry conditions in August and September. " (Apr 2007)
