Description

Produced with the same passion and attention to detail reserved for Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is a real "second vin". A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, which combines immediate pleasantness and taste-olfactory complexity with a proven aging potential.

 

VINTAGE 2019

54% MERLOT

28% CABERNET SAUVIGNON

14% CABERNET FRANC

4% PETIT VERDOT

The 2019 vintage was characterized as few by a very variable climate, which alternated periods of cold and rain with long periods of drought and heat.
After a normal winter, budding took place in the first week of April. The cold and rainy conditions throughout April and May significantly slowed down the vegetative development, leading to a 10-day delayed flowering compared to the average. In June, a very hot and rainless weather suddenly arrived with temperature peaks of 37 ° C reached at the end of the month. Throughout the summer, the weather remained warm and sunny with temperatures well 2 ° C above average and 45 consecutive days without rain. In the last week of July, the long dry period was interrupted by two days of rain, allowing the temperature to be brought back to the seasonal norm, with ideal conditions for ripening.
The harvest began slowly on September 5th. As usual, the last week of September saw a lowering of temperatures which made it possible to preserve a great finesse and aromatic freshness. After another rainy event after 21 September, sunny conditions returned which allowed us to conclude the harvest of the later vines on 4 October.

VINIFICATION AND AGING

The harvest took place by hand in 15 kg crates and the bunches were selected on a double sorting table before and after destemming and subjected to soft pressing at the end. Since 2016, in addition to manual selection, the optical one has been introduced to further increase the quality of the selection. Each variety and each parcel was vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at temperatures between 26-30 ° C for two weeks, followed by maceration for about 10-15 days. The malolactic fermentation began in steel vats and ended after the transfer to barriques (25% new and 75% second passage). The wine remained in barriques in the Ornellaia cellar at a controlled temperature for a period of about 15 months. After the first 12 months, the assembly was carried out and then reintroduced into the barriques where it spent another 3 months. The wine remains in the bottle for six months before being launched on the market.

Ornellaia

ORNELLAIA EXTENDS BETWEEN BOLGHERI AND THE COAST: HISTORY, SEA AND POETRY.

Once part of the lands of Ornellaia were covered by the waters of the Mediterranean which left behind sandy substrates, marl and of course marine fossils. Clays emerge, dotted with heterometric calcareous pebbles.
THE SOILS CHANG SIGNIFICANTLY AS THE ROWS RIDE UP TO THE HILLS TO SEE THE SEA

The soils of Ornellaia are of marine, alluvial and volcanic origin. Over time, man has highlighted their vocation with ever greater accuracy. The vineyards are thus divided into small parcels: each one is a micro-cosm, with its own identity and language. All around, the Mediterranean maquis reigns freely.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are the protagonist vines of the estate, followed by Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and, for the white berried grapes, by Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng, Viognier, Verdicchio and Vermentino.
