The Ornellaia was from the wine list and clearly showed me that while enjoyable young these wines go to another level with time.
Definitely. An excellent lesson gleaned
I will still sample many wines before they reach maturity as I enjoy the lush fruit and bold flavors of young wine. That's why I buy many bottles of wines like 2007 Sassicaia which is drinking surprisingly well for a wine that historically needs 10-15 years. FYI read the CT notes on this wine.
I also enjoyed a 2002 Comtes that night and it was spectacular
