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.

Grapes used

Merlot 50%

Sangiovese 30%

Cabernet sauvignon 20%

Production method

Each variety is harvested at its best ripening moment: for the merlot around the beginning of September, for the sangiovese around mid-September and for the cabernet usually at the end of September/beginning of October. Fermentation takes place separately for the varieties in stainless steel tanks; after the alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation also takes place. The refinement lasts about 10 months; a part of the wine ages in barriques previously used for Ornellaia, the other in cement tanks, to balance ripe notes with fresher fruit notes.

Alcohol content

13.5%

Tasting notes

Intense ruby red color with violet hues. On the nose notes of ripe red fruit such as cherry, blackberry, plum, blueberry and berries, herbaceous and eucalyptus notes, sensations of iodized minerals and spice notes such as black pepper, cloves, vanilla and tobacco. In the mouth soft and round, warm, enveloping and full-bodied. On the finish balanced by good acidity and ripe and elegant tannins. Balanced and long.

Possible combinations

Wine suitable for the whole meal, thanks to the great balance and great elegance. If left to refine in the bottle it can already be an excellent meditation wine. For pairing we see it very well with red meat dishes, whether they are undercooked or more cooked, less or more tasty. Very good also with seasoned and savory 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.
