Ornellaia is a red wine made by the Ornellaia winery in the IGT Tuscany with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot varieties.
Vinification Process: After the careful manual harvesting of the grapes, two rounds of sorting were carried out on a table before destemming and gentle pressing. Each variety and plot was vinified separately.
After spending the first 12 months in French oak barrels, the final blend was made and returned to the wood for a further 6 months of ageing. Ornellaia was further refined in the bottle for an additional 12 months before being introduced to the market.
