Very accessible with just 15-30 mins of air. Red fruit and tobacco on the nose. Very round and balanced with moderate integrated tannins. Very pleasant, though not highly complexity. May drink now; still has lots of life, but not sure it will improve. KAB and JAR LOVED it.
External Reviews for Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Sauvignon Blanc Toscana Poggio Alla Gazze
Pretty blackberry, cherry and licorice aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a smoke-, berry- and chocolate-flavored finish. A pretty wine. This is soft and round compared with my tastings from last year.--Masseto ve... Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2000 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell Masseto 750ml
A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2000 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell' Ornellaia 750ml
This vintage epitomizes the plump and juicy character of Italy's modern wines. The nose here offers up scents of warm blueberries with toasty, spicy nuances of fine French oak. In the mouth one finds lots of upfront fruit as this wine has not had time to develope the nuances and layers that will come with an additional 4-7 years of cellaring.
