Vinet f†r sedan vila de †terst†ende 4 m†naderna i barrique och efter buteljering lagras det ytterligare 6 m†nader p† flaska innan det sl„pps. Mao en 'baby-Ornellaia'. DRUVOR 52% merlot; 28% cabernet sauvignon; 12% petit verdot, 8% cabernet franc.

    A premiere estate located in Tuscany's Bolgheri coast, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia produces the renowned Merlot-based blends Masseto, Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove, and Le Volte. The unique microclimate and combination of clay in the soil eventually proved ideal, epitomized by the 2001 Masseto, which garnered 100 points from the Wine Spectator. The pinnacle achievement at Ornellaia, the Masseto has developed a cult following for its limited allocation.

    Ornellaia, a Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc blend which debuted in 1985, is the estate's signature wine. Le Serre Nuove, which requires less aging and displays a more fruit forward style, is something of a "second wine" and joins Le Volte, a Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot blend, as wines at a younger age.
