Wine Spectator 92 WS - 1996 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Masseto - 92 pts! This set of new releases from Tenuta dell'Ornellaia leaves me looking for words that can adequately capture the pure magic and sheer profoundness the property has achieved in this important hallmark vintage.

RP Dense ruby color; meaty and chocolaty ,with berry aromas. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, caressing finish, it shows loads of character. It's just starting to come around now. Not as impressive as I expected but excellent.--Masseto non-blind vertical. Drink now. 2,915 cases made. WS
