    Bottle (12)
    "Some vintages of Montevetrano are hard to appreciate when they are young. The 2004 is not one of them. Rich and explosive from the outset, the 2004 has all of the elements to be one of the truly profound Montevetranos. Firm yet silky tannins frame deep layers of exuberant, perfumed fruit that caress the palate with stunning grace. This is simply flat-out great. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029." (95pts Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #190, Aug 2010)

    "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." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #137, Oct. 2001)
