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.

2016 represents a successful vintage highlighting the virtues of Bolgheri’s climate: abundant sunshine, without excessive heat, a dry summer to allow the grapes to achieve perfect ripeness and concentration, and just about enough rain to avoid stress. All these elements combine to yield a wine that shows lush ripeness and crisp firmness, opposing forces creating a sense of dense raciness.

A particularly dark and young colour is the prelude to a complex nose of black berries, spices and cedar. The palate is rich and dense, balanced by a refined and firm tannic structure, lifted by a juicy and bright acidity.
