Wine Bolgheri Superiore DOC
Vintage 2010
Format 750 ml

Varietal: 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot

The 2010 vintage was among the coolest and latest-ripening in recent years and yielded one of the most elegant expressions of Ornellaia. A deep ruby hue announces remarkable complexity on the nose, releasing heady fragrances of dark wild berry, pungent spice, and smooth pipe tobacco. The palate is finesse par excellence, with silky tannins and bright, clean-edged fruit, crowned with a finish boasting impressively racy tannins.

The 2010 vintage marks Ornellaia’s 25th anniversary. A celebratory logo, silkscreened in gold and ivory, gives a unique distinctiveness to each bottle of Ornellaia 2010.

Zone: The Ornellaia Estate enjoys exceptional conditions. Located near the sea near the picturesque village of Bolgheri, it is sheltered by the neighbouring hills, the microclimate guarantees perfect ripening conditions; gentle sea breezes temper the summer heat, and hills provide protection from the cold winter winds.

Alluvial, volcanic and marine soils provide a unique tapestry upon which Ornellaia has planted the classic varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot to international acclaim.

Aging: After fermentation in barrique, the wine remained in barriques, in Ornellaia’s temperature-controlled cellars for about 18 months. After the first 12 months of maturation, the wine was assembled and then returned to the barriques for an additional 6 months. After bottling, the wine aged a further 12 months prior to release.
