Wine Bolgheri Superiore DOC
Winery TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA
Vintage 2004
Format 6000 ml

Varietal: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot

2004 can be considered as one of the major expressions of Ornellaia and represents an excellent example of a classic vintage in Bolgheri. The ideal conditions during the growing season lead to a perfect combination of ripeness, flavour complexity and finesse. The velvety opulence of the Merlot is balanced out by the racy and elegant tannic structure of the Cabernets, which are further amplified by the small addition of Petit Verdot.

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.
