TASTING NOTES

When we talk about Ornellaia we talk about 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 locality of the same name, in a slice of Toscana small and wild, a perfect cradle has been created for Bordeaux-cut wines. Tenuta Masseto is a magical place surrounded by woods and the influence of the sea breeze on hot summer days. Massetino debuted 30 years after the first vintage of Masseto: the birth of the second vin and the opening of the winery of Masseto during the same year were fundamental events for the history of the estate. Just like Masseto’s younger brother, Massetino combines power and opulence with classicism. The grapes are always selected strictly to ensure the best possible quality. In 2017 the wines obtained from some parcels of Merlot and Cabernet Franc were considered for Masseto, but some had not developed the qualitative character to be included in the elder brother, so it was decided to include them in a second-vin, which together with other vines could show the potential and personality to create a master-blend. The inaugural year of Massetino is therefore 2017, debuting in 2019 in the market. After a first harvest of the grapes by hand, after destemming and a slight pressing, the grapes are transferred to cement by gravity and where each individual parcel is vinified separately. Fermentation takes place spontaneously by indigenous yeasts; then malolactic fermentation in new oak barrels for 50%. After the first 12 months of aging, the wine is blended and returned to barrique for another 3 months before bottling. The high expressive potential is perceived in the glass, a crisp wine with bright colors. The bouquet is capable of being remembered for its persistence and fullness, with vibrant and constantly evolving tannins. Great meditation wine, excellent in combination with mature cheeses and game. 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). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
