93 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2004

(14. 6% alcohol). Full red-ruby. Very ripe nose offers roasted meat, smoke, tobacco, underbrush and mint. Superripe, silky and lush, with a slightly roasted fruit character. Not a hugely complex or deep vintage for Ornellaia, and likely to evolve relatively quickly, but the wine's uncommonly lush, velvety texture is more than worth the price of admission. Strong cherry fruit emerged with aeration. Almost California-like in its opulence and early appeal. Finishes with big but ripe tannins that are finer than those of the '97.

What can you expect of a Bordeaux blend from Tuscany?
06/05/2004
by Wilfried
TN Ornellaia, Ornellaia, IGT, Tuscany, Italy, 2000 (not blind): Intense purple, fat tears, tints slightly the glass. In the beginning fruit drops nose, slowly evolving into something serious with dark fruit aromas and a bit of barnyard. Full to medium body, over ripe dark fruit, low acidity, powerful velveta tannins. Dark fruit and velvety tannins in the finish. Score: 50 + 4 for optic + 13 for bouquet + 17 for taste + 7 for overall = total score of 91. What can you expect of a Bordeaux blend from Tuscany? Right - a wine that smells and tastes like a Bordeaux, big deal
