The Top 10 Wines of 2001


Posted: January 21, 2004



Wine of the Year 2001

TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia 1998

A cool and sleek Tuscan red, with tarragon and fresh sage aromas, blackberry and cherry undertones. Full-bodied, with a wonderfully silky palate of fine tannins and a long, fruity finish. Very sophisticated and reserved. Best after 2004. 13,330 cases made.
