Magnum 1999 Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Masseto Merlot. Lunch at RW w S&L DiM and P&S Co. Drank after the '78 Heitz Martha's out of magnum. This wine was much, much bigger, as we expected and drank beautifully. Hard to say which we enjoyed more. Awesome.

1999 Masseto Tenuto dell' Ornellaia. Drank w dinner at Toscana w K. We decanted for just over an hour, which was not enough time. Wine gradually got better as it opened up. Dark stone fruits and wet stone. Would've been great if we had had time to decant for a few hours before dinner. We really enjoyed it though. Great wine!
