The clusters were hand-picked, sorted and finally gently crushed. Each variety and each parcel was vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, at controlled temperatures for two weeks followed by skinmaceration of around 10-15 days. Malolactic fermentation was started in stainless steel tanks, and completed after transfer into oak barrels. The wine remained in Ornellaia’s temperature-controlled cellar for a further 15 months. It was assembled after the first 12 months and then reintroduced in the barrels for a further 3 months. After bottling, it was aged for an additional six months prior to release.
Colour: Ruby red of medium intensity.
Bouquet: On the nose it develops fresh crisp fruit aromas underpinned by fine notes of spice.
Taste: The palate is of medium weight with notes of red berry fruit. The tannins are fine, silky and particularly polished. Soft and enveloping yet with a clean lively finish.
