Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia 2004 - Wine Spectators #7 2007
Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia 2004 - #7
The first Italian wine to make it into Wine Spectators TOP 10 of 2007 is really not a surprise to those in Italian wine. The Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia 2004 from Tenuta dell'Ornellaia got 97 points from James Suckling. This is a blended wine from the Tuscan coast in the Bordeaux tradition so was bound to tickle the tastebuds of Senoir Suckling.
Trully it is a wonderful wine but with the Barolo's of 2003 lacking in majesty it's probably up to our old chum Brunello to save the day.
Red wines so far dominate Wine Spectators revealed Top 10 (WS is revealing the Top 10 from the bottom up, 2 each day) with no white wines in places 10 to 5 and just one champagne.
Everyone is trying to guess what the number #1 will be, but I really have no idea. Do you?
