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.

Grapes used

Merlot 50%

Sangiovese 30%

Cabernet sauvignon 20%

Production method

Each variety is harvested at its moment of best ripening: for Merlot around the beginning of September, for Sangiovese around mid-September and for Cabernet usually at the end of September/beginning of October. Fermentation occurs separately for the varieties in stainless steel tanks; following alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation also occurs. Refinement lasts approximately 10 months; a part of the wine ages in barriques previously used for Ornellaia, the other in concrete tanks, to balance mature 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 iodine minerality and spicy notes such as black pepper, cloves, vanilla and tobacco. Soft and round in the mouth, warm, enveloping and full-bodied. The finish is balanced by good acidity and ripe, elegant tannins. Balanced and long.

Possible combinations

Wine suitable for any meal, thanks to its 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 overcooked, less or more tasty. Also very good with mature and tasty cheeses.
