Col d'Orcia Olmaia Cabernet Sauvignon 2000


SKU 00256


Colour: Deep and dense, with shining purple reflexes. Bouquet: Very varietal, the Cabernet fruit is in great balance with the spices from the oak barrel, with a strong touch of "terroir" of Montalcino. Taste: Impressive tannin, but easy to enjoy right now thanks to the enormous and luscious body that encloses these noble polyphenols. From mid palate on you have a crescendo of warm, juicy and deep sensations that lead to a very persistent and unforgettable after-taste.

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.
