Description

History

The history of Tenuta dell’Ornellaia begins in the 1980s when the brothers Lodovico and Piero Antinori divided the Bolgheri property belonging to the family. Lodovico started with the Ornellaia project with a very clear idea in mind, that is, to create a wine business in Tuscany on the Californian model, where quality and experimentation and then marketing and brand creation went hand in hand. Thus the Russian oenologist André Tchelistcheff, who had achieved very important results in the creation of the Napa Valley as we know it today, and Federico Staderini, a talented young man, were consulted. Around the beginning of the nineties, the collaboration with Michel Rolland and other important names on the world wine scene began. Around the end of 1999 the company was acquired by the Californian giant Mondavi and the Frescobaldi family. The new group immediately invested in the quality of the products by calling the oenologist Thomas Duroux from Bordeaux, and placing Leonardo Raspini at the head of the agronomic sector department. In 2005 the Frescobaldis acquired the entire estate and hired Axel Heinz, who is still the winemaker on the estate. The continuous succession of properties and important figures in the world wine field has meant that in just a few years this reality has become a point of reference not only for the area but throughout the world.

Production method

The harvest takes place manually in boxes of approximately 15 kg, the bunches are selected both directly from the plant and on a sorting table after harvesting. Each parcel and blend is vinified separately. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel containers at a temperature ranging from 25°C to 30°C for two weeks followed by a further week of maceration on the skins. The malolactic fermentation begins in steel and then ends in barrique, in total the aging in wood lasts for 15 months. After the first 12 months the blend is created (therefore the final 3 months refinement of the ready blend takes place); the product spends another 6 months in the bottle before actually being put on the market.

Tasting notes

The wine is dark and intense ruby ​​red in color. The nose is struck by notes of red fruit such as blackberries, raspberries and berries, the presence of bay leaves, green pepper, mineral notes and spices such as tobacco, licorice and vanilla are also noticeable. Powerful, soft, broad and sumptuous in the mouth. The finish is counterbalanced by lively acidity and ripe, elegant tannins, which embellish the sip. Very fine persistence in the mouth and aftertaste with pleasant hints of spice.

Possible combinations

Le Serre Nuove is a wine of character and balance, capable of being appreciated already if consumed by the glass in the same year it was released on the market; However, it is a wine that can only improve if left to refine for a few years in the cellar and therefore is a candidate to be a perfect meditation wine. As a pairing, it goes perfectly with all dishes based on well-cooked and tasty red meat or game, even well spiced. Also perfect with a selection of mature cheeses.

Frescobaldi

The history of the Frescobaldi family in Tuscany is often the story of Tuscany itself; tradition and roots date back as far as the 1300s, when Dino Frescobaldi, a poet friend of Dante Alighieri, returned to him the first seven cantos of the Divine Comedy, allowing him to complete the work. Around the same time, the family acquired some estates in the Chianti area and began producing and selling wine. Many centuries later, in about 1855, they were the ones to plant some international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay right here in Tuscany. The 1900s was a century of great revolution for Italian agriculture and therefore for the company as well; production methods were innovated and new possessions were acquired thanks to the wise guidance of Vittorio, Ferdinando, and Leonardo Frescobaldi. Today, the baton has been passed to Lamberto Frescobaldi, a member of the thirtieth generation of the family, who, armed with the knowledge he has acquired, manages the family heritage. The company boasts among its estates Castello di Nipozzano and Castello di Pomino in the Chianti Rufina area, Rémole alle Sieci, Tenuta di Perano in Gaiole in Chianti, one of the family's most recent acquisitions, Gorgona on the homonymous penitentiary island, Tenuta Castiglioni in Montespertoli, Tenuta Castelgiocondo in Montalcino, Tenuta Ammiraglia in the Maremma, and the latest addition Tenuta Calimaia in Montepulciano. The Frescobaldi family manages and owns Ornellaia in Bolgheri.
