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.
