TASTING NOTES

Ornellaia is wine, history, tradition and passion. Founded in 1981 by Marchese Lodovico Antinori, the winery later became part of the Frescobaldi group, which for over 700 years has contributed to the leadership of quality Italian enology. In the homonymous locality, in a small and wild slice of Tuscany, a perfect cradle has been created for the wines made from the Bordeaux cut. The Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia comes from the same vines, the same sky and the same philosophy of the great wine of the same name known worldwide. It is identified as the second proud wine, with the gift of anticipating the character of the vintage of the wine symbol of the estate. Its sip and character evolves over time adding to the energy of youth the charm of maturity. The "second vin" of Tenuta Ornellaia is a blend of 44% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and 13% Petit Verdot, which combines pleasantness and taste-olfactory complexity with great aging potential. The grapes are harvested manually, with a selection of the bunches on a double sorting table before and after destemming and subjected to a soft pressing at the end. In addition to manual selection, optical selection has also been introduced to increase the quality of selection. Each variety and parcel was vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation took place partly in stainless steel vats, partly in cement steel vats at a constant temperature between 22-28 ºC for two weeks followed by maceration on the skins for 10-15 days. The malolactic fermentation took place in steel vats, then the wines were transferred to new and second-pass barriques. The wine remains in barriques in the cellar of Ornellaia for a period of about 15 months. After the first 12 months it was assembled and then reintroduced in barriques where he spent another 3 months. The wine remains in the bottle six months before being placed on the market. The wine has an intense ruby red color in the glass, with purple and violet reflections. Ornellaia’s Serre Nuove reveals without shyness an evident and generous aromatic expression, accompanied by aromas of ripe red fruits. The taste is soft, round and enveloping, but at the same time full-bodied and tannic, showing on the finish great balance, structure and elegance. Its specific expression makes it perfect in combination with pasta with meat sauce or with main dishes of stewed red meat. To fully appreciate its style, this wine should be served at a serving temperature of 16/18 ºC. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is located a short distance from the village of Bolgheri, Tuscany. Of all the wonderful farms in the region, this is perhaps the only one to stand on land praised by one of the greatest Italian poets of the 20th century: In fact, Giosuè Carducci had written a poem about the monumental cypress avenue that leads right to the Bolgheri area and the gentle contours of the hills dotted with vineyards. The area's enduring charm and privileged terroir location has motivated the work of the winery, which is driven to do more and more to produce Tuscan wines that live up to their provenance. A work marked by passion and love for the land and its unique characteristics, which was accompanied by a meticulous study of the latest technologies and techniques. Selective harvesting done by hand, microvinification and storage ageing lead to a flawless end result, perfect in every detail and rich in character. Name and address of producer/distributor: Tenuta dell'Ornellaia - Località Ornellaia, 191. Fraz. Bolgheri, 57022 Castagneto Carducci (LI).
