Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Masseto Bolgheri 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 1990 Masseto comes across as quite ripe and almost exotic, very much in the style of the year. This is a decidedly opulent, full-bodied vintage. Tar, smoke and licorice wrap around the huge finish. My preference was for the 1988 in this first flight, but to tell the truth all of three last wines were spectacular. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015. (Nov 2011)

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia:

Intensives Purpurrot mit violett-schwarzen Reflexen, zarte Randaufhellung; in der Nase sehr kompakt und dicht. In der Nase Lakritze, Cassis, Zwetschgen und etwas Vanille sowie feinen Röstnoten duftend. Im Gaumen schön dicht, mit finessenreicher Aromastruktur. Herrlich elegant und mit kerniger Struktur. Reife und Balance sind die besten Merkmale, die den Ornellaia wohl am besten beschreiben.

Good fresh deep red. Knockout nose combines black fruits, tar, mocha and humus. A hugely concentrated, sweet wine with great richness of fruit and extract. The first vintage of Ornellaia to reach 14% alcohol, and it shows in the wines compelling thi... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1990 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell Ornellaia 375ml
