One of the great super Tuscans, the Ornellaia estate lies hidden in the foothills around Bolgheri that face the Mediterranean coast. The estate's production philosophy revolves around Ornellaia’s obsession with excellence – at all levels.
Bolgheri’s climate is perfectly suited to producing great wine. Abundant sunshine, without excessive heat, dry allowing the grapes to achieve perfect ripeness and concentration, and just about enough rain to avoid stress.
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 bright, juicy acidity.
Pairs exceptionally with hearty Tuscan food. Stewed red meats, such as beef and wild boar, or a roasted pork make excellent combinations for this full-bodied Italian red.
