Visual

Golden colour.

Palate

On the palate the wine literally spreads out to coat the palate with its richness, while a steely and juicy acidity refreshes the finish.

Nose

Perfectly ripe citrus fruit and minerals on the nose.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand-harvested and immediately cooled on arrival in the cellar. Must was placed in barriques, 30% new and 70% used, for alcoholic fermentation. The ageing continued for 12 months on the lees with periodic batonnage, and concluded in steel vats for 3 more months. The wine was then aged in the bottle for a further 6 months.

The desire to nurture the Estate’s exceptional qualities has shaped Ornellaia’s philosophy since the beginning. Ornellaia Bianco is a blend with a majority of Sauvignon Blanc coming from three small vineyards that have demonstrated their remarkable capacity to express the unique character of Ornellaia.
