Well-ripened red and black berryfruit is well in evidence on the palate. Silk-smooth tannins are beautifully calibrated throughout, while every component contributes to the wine’s firm structure and generous body. It concludes with a near-endless finish.

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.

Winter saw temperatures that were milder than those in 1999 but colder than in 1998. Budbreak occurred in early April, and despite some rain results were quite positive and uniform overall. Spring brought normal temperatures and sunny days, with flowering over by mid-May. Sun-filled days characterised the summer, right up to harvest-time, with no rainfall and well-above-average temperatures. Growth stages in the vineyards proceeded at an optimal pace. In mid-July, cluster-thinning was carried out, removing some 30% of the Merlot and 10% of the Cabernet Sauvignon, ensuring that the remaining clusters would develop to their fullest quality potential. The Merlot harvest began in the first week in September and carried through to mid-month. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc began to be picked towards mid-September and finished in early October.  This year’s harvest was noteworthy for its above-average temperatures and total lack of rainfall. All the grapes were hand-picked into small, 15-kg boxes.
