Description

History

The history of the Ornellaia Estate begins in the 1980s when the brothers Lodovico and Piero Antinori divided the Bolgheri property belonging to the family. Lodovico set out with the Ornellaia project with a very clear idea in mind, that is to create a winery in Tuscany on the Californian model, where quality and experimentation and then marketing and brand creation went hand in hand. Thus the Russian winemaker André Tchelistcheff was consulted, 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. Around the beginning of the nineties, the collaboration with Michel Rolland and other important names in the world wine scene began. Around the end of 1999 the company was acquired by the Californian giant Mondavi and by the Frescobaldis. The new group immediately invested in the quality of the products by calling the oenologist Thomas Duroux from Bordeaux, and putting Leonardo Raspini in charge of the agronomic sector department. In 2005, the Frescobaldi family acquired the entire estate and hired Axel Heinz, who is still the winemaker on the estate. The continuous succession of important properties and figures in the world winemaking field has meant that in a very few years this reality has become a reference reality not only for the area but throughout the world.

Production method

The grapes are cooled immediately after harvesting to preserve the aromas. After careful selection, the whole bunches are softly pressed and vinified in 3 different containers: 25% in new barriques, 25% in used barriques and 50% in steel and cement tanks. The malolactic fermentation is not carried out but the refinement is extended for 6 months on the feces using the batonnage technique. Before bottling, the blend of the various grapes is made and the product is subsequently aged for 12 months before being placed on the market.

Tasting notes

Intense straw yellow color with golden hues. On the nose, a rich and complex bouquet of aromas: the notes of yellow fruit, citrus fruits, pineapple, banana, mango, peach stand out with notes of white elderberry and orange flowers. Sensations of laurel and vegetal notes with references also to some delicate spices such as cinnamon, vanilla and white pepper. In the mouth persuasive and soft, balanced by a present and fresh final acidity. Long and spicy finish, very pleasant.

Possible combinations

Perfect with fish-based dishes, even medium-sized ones, or dishes with delicate vegetables such as asparagus, fish crudités and seafood.
