Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT le Volte 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)
