In Stock Unavailable
1998 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia - Wine of The Year! Dark color, with intense aromas of green and black olives and rich, ripe raspberries. Full-bodied, with big velvety tannins and a bold, exciting finish. This is very structured. Full throttle.--Masseto non-blind vertical. Best after 2007. 2,580 cases made. WS A cool and sleek Tuscan red with tarragon and fresh sage aromas blackberry and cherry undertones. Full-bodied with a wonderfully silky palate of fine tannins and a long fruity finish. Very sophisticated and reserved. WS The 1998 is a decidedly slender Ornellaia. More advanced than the 1999 it shows notes of tobacco herbs and ripe fruit on a medium-bodied frame with good length on the palate and slightly less polished tannins than is usually the case. The final blend in 1998 was 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. RP
