Description

History

Inside the Ornellaia estate in Bolgheri there is a particular, almost “magical” vineyard. Unused for a long time, its potential was intuited around the 1980s, when the first vines were planted, in spite of forecasts and statistics. This vineyard of only 6 hectares has today revealed some of its secrets, giving life to one of the most famous wines in the world; a key element is the proximity to the sea, which reflects the sunlight causing a unique ripening of the grapes and influencing the product with the maritime winds and the mitigation of the climate; moreover, the subsoil is of very ancient blue clay precisely by virtue of the fact that in the past it was a seabed.

Grapes used

Merlot 51%

Cabernet Sauvignon 40%

Cabernet Franc 7%

Petit Verdot 2%

Production method

Fermentation takes place partly in stainless steel tanks and partly in temperature-controlled cement vats, with 3 weeks of maceration. The aging is in oak barrels, where the malolactic fermentation takes place, for 18 months, followed by at least a further year of aging in the bottle.

Alcohol content

14.5%

Tasting notes

The wine is an intense ruby red colour. Notes of Russian fruit, such as blueberry, raspberry, cherry and flowers such as violet, spiced tertiary notes also emerge. In the mouth it is full-bodied, pleasant, structured but at the same time very balanced with light tannins.

Possible combinations

It goes perfectly with red meat, wild boar and aged cheeses.
