Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

9.91 rating on Delectable
$239

...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 1999 Ornellaia is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wine spent 18 months in French oak (60% new) prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021.
