"Shows wonderful aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of vanilla and Indian spices. Full-bodied and powerful, with layers of chewy tannins and a long, flawless finish. Compact and dense, yet racy and refined. Not the perfect 2001, but close. Best after 2013."
"The 2004 Masseto is all silk and elegance. The 2004 is arguably the most finessed, silky Masseto ever made. Bright floral notes add lift and precision to a core of sweet red berries and spices in this supple, exceptionally polished wine. This is the height of elegance and polish with Masseto. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024."
The Wine Advocate
"Deep bright ruby with purple highlights. Extravagantly rich, multidimensional aromas of raspberry, ripe black plum and violet are complicated by black truffle, espresso, milk chocolate and mineral, with high-quality vanillin oak remaining in the background. Wonderfully silky on the palate but with immense power, this is real iron-fist-in-a-velvet-glove. The imposingly rich fruit avoids coming across as overripe, and the notes of leather, tobacco, tamarind and mocha linger on the palate for minutes. A compellingly suave and smooth wine whose extremely fine-grained tannins and hint of slightly sharp acidity bring the wine's rich, complex flavors into full focus. This is probably the best pair of wines made at Ornellaia since 2001-a distinct step ahead of the 2003s and 2002s made here-and must purchases for collectors with deep pockets. "

The estate yields some of the finest Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc in Tuscany. In 2002, Marchesi de' Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi became owners of Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, which is now owned exclusively by Marchesi de' Frescobaldi.
One of the most important wine regions in Italy, Tuscany is home to the cities of Florence and Siena, the districts of Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, and the wineries of Sassicaia, Tignanello and Ornellaia.

No second fiddle
Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...Read More About Merlot
