Masseto 1999 Tenuta dell' Ornellaia
|Brand||Tenuta dell' Ornellaia|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
The 1999 Masseto is a cool, inward wine graced with exquisite finesse, but it still needs a few years in bottle to show its potential. That said, it is pretty spectacular even today. This is a vintage that will appeal to readers who enjoy firm, structured wines.
Beautiful violet, berry and raspberry character. Very fruity and pretty. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. This is seductive and modern. It shows excellent potential for aging.--Masseto non-blind vertical.
