Vol- 150cl

60% Cabernet Suavignon 35% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc

On harvesting, the grapes were destemmed and crushed before being introduced partially in wooden fermentors and partially in stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature not exceeding 30°C. Maceration continued for a period of 20-25 days after which the wine was transferred into new French oak barriques (60% new and 40% once-used) where it completed its malolactic fermentation. Each single variety and each vineyard lot was aged separately. The wine remained in barriques in the temperature controlled cellars at Tenuta dell’Ornellaia for a period of 18 months. After the first 12 months the master blend was made and the wine was reintroduced into the barriques for the remaining 6 months period and then bottled. A further refinement period of 12 months in the bottle followed, prior to release.

The Ornellaia estate was first the creation of Ludovico Antinori. His desire to set his own standards apart from the family firm had led him to the Tuscan Coast at Bolgheri, adjacent to his cousin Nicolo Incia's Tenuta San Guido of Sassicaia. The combination of soil and man made this one of the pre-eminent modern wineries of Italian fine wine. The turn of the century saw the estate move into the owenrship of that oter Tuscan royal wine family, Frescobaldi, following a short period of joint ownership with Calfornia's Mondavi. The Bordeaux influenced wines of the estate are icons of International Styled Italian wine.
