1996 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Masseto Toscana IGT

Wine Description

(From 1998 Vintage) A big, juicy red. Black, with intense aromas of black olives and sage, plus masses of fruit. Full-bodied and very velvety, with a long, long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) "Shows wonderful aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of vanilla and Indian spices. Full-bodied and powerful, with layers of chewy tannins and a long, flawless finish. Compact and dense, yet racy and refined. Not the perfect 2001, but close. Best after 2013."Wine Spectator98 Points

      Tasted by La Turque on 9/12/2010 & rated 95 points: This wine has come along very nicely. A glorious nose of black fruits and cedar. On the palate, the wine is complete and balanced, with fine tannins, soft acidity, lovely fruit and a very long finish. This wine will drink for another 15 years. (2197 views)
