External Reviews for Olmaia Cabernet di Toscana
Olmaia 2005 - 4 Stars, Restaurant Wine / Powerful and complex; this is an intensely flavored Cabernet blend, with excellent depth and length. It is long on the finish, and tastes of black currant, cedar, toast, black cherry, and spicy oak.
Olmaia Cabernet 2005 - 89 Points, Wine Advocate / ...is a classy, elegant red... wine offers racy aromatics wedded to a core of silky, perfumed fruit, with a long, refined finish...Col d'Orcia, one of Montalcino's historic properties, is located in Sant'Angelo in Colle in the southern part of the appellation.
Olmaia 2005/ Olmaia delivers power and intensity with interwoven tones of ripe fruit, spice, forest floor and leather. The wine exhibits a rich and smooth texture that helps drive it along the palate in a soft and very pleasurable manner.
Olmaia 2005 - Wine Spectator/ Offers mineral and berry aromas, with hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with a dense palate and a silky tannin structure.
Olmaia 2004 - Silver Medal & Best in Class, International WIne & Spirits Competition/ The colour is deep garnet with a brick edge. There is a perfect note of maturity on the nose which is sublime and in which oak and fruit are perfectly and harmoniously combined. The palate is refined, silky and surprisingly light, with a touch of savoury spice and cranberries. This is perfect for drinking now.
/ Olmaia is a pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon that hits all the right marks. You can taste the variety's natural flavors but they never seem green or medicinal. Instead the wine is plush, soft, round and opulent, with ideal harmony and balance and beautiful delivery of chocolate, cherry, vanilla and herbal aromas. The wine almost exaggerates, if possible, its generosity and roundness.
