Wine Details







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

Number 6 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004! The great 2000/1 vintage at Tenuta dell' Ornellaia produced one of the most extraordinary vintage Masseto ever made. The wine is rich with profound depth. The aromas, which continue to evolve, remind us of the complexity of the grapes at harvest. The tannins are exceptionally rich and literally fill the palate indicating a magnificent aging potential. 100% Merlot.

    Intense, pure blackberry, dark chocolate and olive aromas/flavours. Structured and perfectly balanced. Minutes long finish. Perhaps the finest young Merlot I have ever tasted. 98 pts.
