51% Sangiovese, 34% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tight nose, some fruit and herbs, some oak. Medium bodied. Not bad, but it has a distinct green-pepper, vegetal flavour (probably due to less than ripe Cabernet Sauvignon). If it we're $20 I'd be underwhelmed. At almost $30 it's disappointing, especially for a wine from Ornellaia even if it is their bottom shelf label.
