Ornellaia 1999 Bolgheri 75cl / 14.5%
A bottle of Ornellaia 1999 from Tuscany, a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc (this was made prior to the usage of Petit Verdot).
'This vivid, energetic wine emerges from the glass with a myriad of graphite, menthol, licorice, leather and dark fruit wrapped around a powerful core. The bouquet alone is worth the price of admission. Though not as opulent as the 1997, the 1999 offers exceptional length and a finessed, regal close....The wine spent 18 months in French oak (60% new) prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021. 95/100' Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate, Tasted 2010 (from magnum)
