Ornellaia 1990 (96VM) (750ML)
94 WA 96 WS
"A decadent red, with loads of tobacco, cherry and meat aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and long rich aftertaste. I have found bottle variation with this wine, but this is superb quality.--1990 Tuscany retrospective...96" WS 10/00 "Good fresh deep red. Knockout nose combines black fruits, tar, mocha and humus. A hugely concentrated, sweet wine with great richness of fruit and extract. The first vintage of Ornellaia to reach 14% alcohol, and it shows in the wine's compelling thickness. Far from the subtlest wine in the range, but ripe acidity and big, sweet tannins give it plenty of verve and grip. Today, I find this wine fresher and a bit more detailed than the estate's 2000. A monumental wine today, but this could still use another four or five years in bottle to reach its peak...96" Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media 09/04 "...foreshadows an opulent style that would become the norm in future years. A rich, dense Ornellaia, the 1990 offers exceptional balance in its expressive bouquet, ripe fruit and beautifully balanced acidity. Earthiness, licorice, smoke and menthol linger on the elegant finish. In 1990 temperatures were unusually warm toward the end of the growing season, which comes through in the wine’s generous, open personality. The 1990 Ornellaia is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc....94." WA 1/10.
