All Vintages of this wine
The Ornato 2009 is a very rich Barolo, quite dense, with supple tannins, yet fully concentrated on ripe fruits. The style is elegant and powerful, with an extremely long finish. It is produced in small quantities and only in excellent vintages.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Barolo Ornato, on the other hand, shows a modern approach with softer fruit layers and thicker, velvety texture. The fact that the fruit is sourced in the Serralunga d'Alba township (known for more opulent wines) underlines the wine's open and overt personality. Given the vintage, I'd apply a shorter drinking window to this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
