Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Bolgheri Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

...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.

1999, A lovely Italian creation, Bordeaux blend, complex rich and confusing when tasted blind. Most thought we are in France, but were not disappointed to find themselves in Tuscan. This wonderful wine has a deep red color, nose is complex and rich full of mint, green pepper, black cherries, black current, chocolate and a touch on mineral, full body, with lavish rich tannins, complex yet elegant with lovely acidity, and a long lasting delicious finish. A true pleasure. My score 93, drink to 2019 perhaps longer.

Feel very lucky to enjoy such a fine, robust but well-rounded treat after cellaring for many years.
