Olmaia Cabernet

2012 Italy Tuscany
92 Points

Black cherry and blackberry flavors are embraced by a layer of spicy, toasty oak, while tobacco, sage and leather notes add depth. Powerful and tannic, with a beefy finish. Give this time to absorb the oak. Best from 2018 through 2026.

...is a classy, elegant red... wine offers racy aromatics wedded to a core of silky, perfumed fruit, with a long, refined finish...Col d'Orcia, one of Montalcino's historic properties, is located in Sant'Angelo in Colle in the southern part of the appellation.

Olmaia delivers power and intensity with interwoven tones of ripe fruit, spice, forest floor and leather. The wine exhibits a rich and smooth texture that helps drive it along the palate in a soft and very pleasurable manner.

Olmaia Cabernet

2004 Italy Tuscany

The colour is deep garnet with a brick edge. There is a perfect note of maturity on the nose which is sublime and in which oak and fruit are perfectly and harmoniously combined. The palate is refined, silky and surprisingly light, with a touch of savoury spice and cranberries. This is perfect for drinking now.

Olmaia Cabernet

NV/MV Italy Tuscany

Wonderful earthy, roasted coffee bean bouquet introduces velvety smooth Cabernet fruit flavors, with a bright mineral character supporting the lingering finish. Nicely structured- should age nicely. Very good now and over the next 10 years.
