Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore, Tuscany, Italy 1998

Robert Parker
Made in a relatively structured style for the normally succulent Ornellaia, the dense saturated ruby/purple-colored 1998 offers up aromas of pain grille, spice, smoke, black fruits, and graphite. Full-bodied, concentrated, exceptionally pure, and long, it will be at its finest between 2005-2018. Very impressive, but it requires patience.

Wine Spectator
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. Best after 2004. 13,339 cases made.
