Ornellaia

DOC Bolgheri Superiore

The desire to nurture the Estate’s exceptional qualities has shaped Ornellaia’s philosophy since the beginning. Ornellaia is a cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot and the faithful expression of unique terroir developed in harmony with nature.

The clusters are selected by hand on a double sorting table, before and after destemming, and finally softly crushed. Each grape variety and single vineyard block is vinified separately. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 10-15 days, followed by 7-10 days of maceration on the skins. The wine is aged in barriques (70% new), in Ornellaia’s temperature-controlled cellars for about 18 months.
