Col d'Orcia Olmaia Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorLots of ripe fruit, meat and cedar character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with loads of berry and plum character and a wild, exotic fruit finish. Stylish. Best after 2005. 1,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2000 Olmaia is quite typical of Tuscan Cabernet in a hot year, dark in color but not entirely saturated, warm and alcoholic on the nose and palate, a good expression of cassis and herbs but a bit dry in texture and short on the finish. Drink: 2005-2010.
