INFORMATION OF INTEREST Ornellaia 2014
The company's production philosophy focuses on one goal: quality. Each choice therefore takes on an extreme importance and implies absolute attention to detail. At no stage in the production process are allowed shortcuts: this is our way of working and that is how we can get the best grapes according to the climatic characteristics of each year.
During the harvest phase, analysis and empirical evidence allow us to carefully select the bunches to be harvested. The tasting of the grapes makes it possible to better evaluate the maturation of tannins and the balance of the bunches, to establish the best time for the harvest and the vinification technique for the grapes of each plot. We subject the grapes to a double selection: a first sorting table for quality verification, then a second check for the removal of any residual vegetation.
The grapes of each cru ferment separately, since each base wine contributes to the creation of the final blend, by virtue of the specific conditions of the vineyard of origin: combination of soil, climatic exposure and naturally type of vine. Only after a year of aging in cask the base wines are assembled in compliance with the two main criteria: the expression of elegance inherent in the spirit of Ornellaia and the style of the vintage.
