The Ornellaia production philosophy revolves around an obsession with excellence – at all levels. Every choice made is of absolute importance and implies an all-consuming attention to detail. At no point in the production process are shortcuts allowed or tolerated in order to succeed harvesting grapes and producing wines that are of the very highest quality irrespective of the climatic conditions in any particular year.
An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining ripe fruit with a silky and generous texture underlined by a fresh and lively acidity.
