Ornellaia 1993 Tenuta dell' Ornellaia
|Brand||Tenuta dell' Ornellaia|
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
The 1993 Ornellaia (magnum) is just plain beautiful. Plums, tobacco, spice box, cedar and spices come together with notable elegance. The wine possesses exceptional purity in a soft, approachable style. The 1993 is one of the best Ornellaias for current drinking. It is a wonderful effort. In 1993 Ornellaia relies heavily on Cabernet Sauvignon (78%) and Cabernet Franc (5%) in the blend, while the remaining 17% is Merlot. The wine spent 16 months in French oak, 33% new.

Not the biggest Ornellaia, but delicious. Pretty berry, cherry and dried herb character with a hint of new wood. Medium-bodied with soft tannins and a juicy finish.
