1994 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Toscana

SKU #231122 89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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.  (1/ 2010)

Jancis Robinson

 Dark crimson with a pale rim. Slightly soapy overlay. More restrained than previous vintage. Very fine tannins. Quite delicate. Lively and dancing. Bravo! (18/20)  (4/ 2006)

The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
