Technical Info


Ornellaia, founded in 1981, has quickly become one of the most iconic producers in Italy (and beyond)-a legendary estate hidden in the foothills of Bolgheri, facing the Mediterranean coast. Ornellaia produces world-class wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc, and prides itself on its obsession with excellence – at all levels. No shortcuts in the production process are allowed or tolerated, each grape is subject to a double selection process, and each vineyard is vinified separately in individual tanks, allowing each individual base wine to contribute its own character to the final blend.


The clusters were hand-picked into small 15kg boxes in the early morning hours and immediately chilled on arrival at the cellar in order to fully preserve their aromatic compounds. After a meticulous quality selection, the whole clusters were given a very slow, gradual pressing, while great care was exercised to prevent oxidation of the fruit. After gravity settling of some 12 hours, the separate lots of must were put in barriques, 23% of which new and 27% used, in steel tanks, and in concrete and oak vats (50%). Fermentation temperatures did not exceed 22 Celsius, and the wine did not go through malolactic fermentation. The wine matured on the fine lees for 6 months, with regular bâtonnage throughout the period, followed by the assemblage of the final blend. After a light fining, it rested an additional 12 months in the bottle before release.


Poggio alle Gazze dell'Ornellaia owes its elegant Mediterranean style to the Estate's unique microclimate. This gift of nature allows Poggio alle Gazze dell'Ornellaia, with its predominance of Sauvignon Blanc (61%), to display a firm structure and ripe fruit while maintaining great finesse. This unique blend also includes 23% of Viognier, 14% of Vermentino and 2% Petit Manseng
