Dense ruby color; meaty and chocolaty ,with berry aromas. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, caressing finish, it shows loads of character. It?s just starting to come around now. Not as impressive as I expected but excellent.--Masseto non-bli... Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1996 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell' Masseto 750ml

A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1996 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell' Ornellaia 750ml
