Tenuta Dellornellaia "Ornellaia" Italian Super Tuscans 1988

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia:
Production dictated by the nature of the vintage, hand-harvesting only when the grapes are fully ripe, the grapes of the individual vineyards fermented separately, in the respect of a unique and precious terroir.

Tight, steely, mineral nose that sets this apart from younger versions. Still retains black currant fruit but all the other elements, slatiness and a strong tobacco note gives this a more than passing resemblance to a fine Graves. A bit of cheesiness reveals it age. This offer a nice, soft resolved entry with lovely tea notes up front building towards a bright cassis midpalate which is a bit compressed on the top. Still taut, cool , yet balanced. Drink em up 2008-2012
