#overrated tasted it blind with 3 other #supertuscan wines ranging from 40€, 75€ and these and #ornellaia (the best). all the other 3 were better. This was light intensity aromas on the nose, it really the least aromatic and then on the palate it was acidic just a little disjointed and unbalanced. — 8 months ago

Interesting comment, @MICHAEL COOPER— many years ago I secured 4 bottles of the 1985 Sassacaia on release, put one into a 1985 Bordeaux/CalCab super vertical with 5 flights, 30 wines total, blind to everyone (I knew which flight of 6 it was in, but not which wine it was). Our group of 12 tasters was so underwhelmed that I took advantage of the RP100 score and unloaded the remaining 3 bottles for more than $1,250 per, and never looked back. To each his own, though, as I know folks who adore Sassacaia!!

@MICHAEL COOPER , meant too add the blind vertical tasting was in 1995, IIRC.

More poised and elegant than I recall, but in a good way. A good dose of oak but it takes it well as it already seems fairly well integrated.

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Big fun for vacation. Huge wine. Open for 90 minutes before first sip. Rich dark colour Notes of dark oak, cedar and tobacco on the nose. Still lots of tannin and despite the considerable grip well balanced and elegant. Truly lovely but can wait another 5 years for the next to see it evolve. Excellent wine - and I don’t say that very often!! #ornellaia — 9 months ago
