1995 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, Masseto, Tuscany, Italy

This wine was served in a flight with the 1999 Scrio. At first hand comparison the wine was tame and shy and defiantly lacking behind. It quickly gained its character and proved to be a rather elegant wine with deep sensual core of chocolate fruit with mocha. The taste is warm, deep and sensual. A bit more nerve is needed to score higher and as with many ’95 there was a bit of dry extract on the closing. Still a seductive and overall elegant wine, with great drinking pleasure. (94)
