    Ornellaia 1997
    Tenuta dell' Ornellaia
    Bottle (3)

    Property of our second-longest consigning relationship. Wines all purchased on release or as futures and stored under temperature and humidity-control.

    "The estate’s 1997 Ornellaia (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc) combines the large-framed opulence of the 1999 with the slightly more herbal notes found in the 1998. It is a big, plump wine packed with layers of fruit and well-integrated oak, showing outstanding length and the telltale note of sweetness on the finish that defines this vintage. Despite its approachable nature today, the 1997 appears to have enough structure to drink well for another decade." (93 pts. Antonio Galloni, In the Cellar, Apr. 2007)

    "Dark ruby red. Shows intense blackberry, currant, fresh herb and mineral character on the nose. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Still young and powerful." (95 pts. JS, WineSpectator.com, 2007)
