Bolgheri Rosso Superiore 'Ornellaia' Tenuta dell'Ornellaia 2008


The Bolgheri Rosso Superiore "Ornellaia" is a celebrated Supertuscan, a full-bodied and powerful Tuscan wine made from a blend of international grape varieties. After 18 months in barrique it expresses itself in a complexity of aromas reminiscent of jammy fruit, coffee and sweet spices. The sip is soft, rich and very balanced

"Ornellaia" is a prestigious oenological masterpiece, a symbol par excellence of wine made in Italy. It comes from Bolgheri, a marvellous corner of Tuscany that has bewitched artists and personalities of all times and has become famous for being a land where the Bordeaux blend gives products of extraordinary finesse and personality. All this, in fact, is Ornellaia, Tenute dell'Ornellaia's most representative wine. It is intended to be the perfect synthesis between elegance, which has always defined the winery and its products, and the style of the vintage. It is an eloquent wine, in short, capable of bringing Italian charm and skill everywhere. The winery's imperative is quality, which translates into painstaking attention to detail. Only in this way can Supertuscans be born that stand out, in Italy and around the world, for precision and class.

Bolgheri Rosso Superiore "Ornellaia" is a Bordeaux blend, broken down into Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The grapes are harvested by hand and are preceded by numerous analyses and actual tastings of the berries in order to best assess the degree of ripeness and balance of the components. This makes it possible to make an initial selection already in the vineyard, followed by a double sorting in the winery. The grapes are vinified separately according to the cru of origin so that the most expressive cut of "Ornellaia" can be made. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, while the malolactic fermentation takes place mainly inside oak barriques. After an initial ageing of 12 months in barrique, the cuvee is created, and then reintroduced into the wood to finish ageing with another 6 months or so. Maturation in the bottle requires another 12 months of patient waiting.

Bolgheri DOC "Ornellaia" is a noble-coloured wine with a deep ruby-red coat. The bouquet ranges from fruity notes, spicy timbres and characteristic earthy hints of underbrush to evolving into fascinating ethereal trails. What persuades and enchants is the impeccable balance, as well as the enveloping structure and silky, elegant tannins. "Ornellaia" is a wine that speaks for itself, telling of a harmonious marriage of vine, terroir and man.
