Ornellaia--Vintage 1997
Tuscany. Tenuta dell'Ornellaia
Lot 242 in original wooden case, lot 243 in original carton
Tasting note: The estates 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. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Apr 2007
