Tasting Notes

I drank this at one of my favorite wine destinations in Tuscany: L'Enoteca Marcucci in Pietrasanta. 1994 is a weak year for Tuscany, but this wine goes. Pleasant and fruity but a little diluted. Medium body with fine tannins and a light finish. This was never great, but delicious.

Score: 92

The 1994 Ornellaia (magnum) is a decidedly small-scaled, mid-weight effort with attractive, fragrant aromatics and delicate notes of tobacco and spices that add a measure of nuance to the fruit. While the 1994 lacks the complexity of the finest vintages, it nevertheless possesses lovely overall balance and harmony. The 1994 Ornellaia is 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that spent 15 months in French oak, a third of which was new.

Score: 89

Dark crimson with a pale rim. Slightly soapy overlay. More restrained than previous vintage. Very fine tannins. Quite delicate. Lively and dancing. Bravo!

Score: 18
