1996 Ornellaia Masseto, Tuscany, Italy

A dark red colour with with ripe fruit combined with smoke and chocolate. I decanted it for 3 hours and it got better all the time in the glass. Raspberry and cherry revealing itself after a while and it was all very elegant. The taste is powerful - balanced with a 45sec. finish. The wine is very dry with firm tannin and has a long life ahead. Very nice. (94)
