BOLGHERI DOC SUPERIORE

 

The desire to nurture the Estate’s exceptional qualities has shaped Ornellaia’s philosophy since the beginning. Ornellaia is a cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot and the faithful expression of unique terroir developed in harmony with nature.

The climate for the 1995 vintage was characterised by a late Spring which caused the flowering to occur slightly later than usual: the latter part of May for the Merlot and at the end of June for the Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc. The temperatures were slightly cooler than average for the months of June and July, and the area also experienced slightly more rainfall than usual.  Shortly thereafter temperatures rose to a level significantly higher with the absence of any rainfall, encouraging the maturation of the fruit. The onset of August was uncharacteristically rainy which subsequently caused a lowering of the temperature, resulting in a period much cooler than normal. Mid-September through the end of October was characterized by a perfect climate which allowed for optimum maturation of the grapes. The fruit was collected entirely by hand in baskets of max 15 Kg. Harvest was carried out between the 5th and the 11th of September for the Merlot and between the 19th of September and the 10th of October for the Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc.
