Description

The structure and refinement of a Tuscan red wine

The estate

With a renown that has gone beyond the Mediterranean coast of Italy to establish itself internationally, Tenuta dell’Ornellaia is one of Italy’s biggest names in wine. Founded in 1981, this jewel in the heart of Tuscany is now owned and operated by the Frescobaldi family. In the space of a few decades, the estate’s exceptional skill, supported by the consultant oenologist Michel Rolland and the oenologist Axel Heinz, has confirmed the reputation of these great wines across the world while reinterpreting the finesse of Italian wines in the light of a great terroir.

The vineyard

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia overseesr a Tuscan vineyard which, thanks to its diversity of exposures, benefits from both a refreshing sea breeze and natural protection against the cold winds in winter. Located not far from the Bolgheri hills, this terroir owes its uniqueness to its mosaic of sandy-clay soils of marine, alluvial and volcanic origin. The grape varieties used in the blend of these great Tuscan wines, grown in the heart of these preserved landscapes, develop a pure and refined expression.

The vintage

A mild but relatively wet winter helped to replenish water reserves before a dry March. The budburst started at the beginning of April and gave way to flowering at the end of May under ideal conditions. The summer was particularly hot and dry, conditions that had little impact on the vineyard thanks to sufficient water reserves. The warmth of September made it possible to harvest according to ripeness in each terroir.

Winemaking and ageing

Plot-by-plot vinification in steel vats. Alcoholic fermentation followed by malolactic fermentation. Ageing for 10 months, partly in barrels of the estate's Grand Vin, but also in cement vats.

Blend

Sangiovese
Merlot
And other Bordeaux grape varieties.
