‘Fraxinus Ornus’ is the Latin name for Orniello. Ornellaia is named after this ancient Mediterranean plant and has also bestowed the epithet on this dessert wine. Ornus dell’Ornellaia is made from late-harvested grapes grown in a tiny vineyard. Time, experience and meditation.
“Ornus dell’Ornellaia is inspired by a passion for our land and the wish to harness all its potential to produce fine dessert wines, which are shaped by the mild and breezy autumnal conditions in the Bolgheri region. Ornus dell’Ornellaia 2020 shines with a signature shade of gold in the glass. The wine is intensely aromatic with sweet honeyed and quince notes alongside hallmark dried apricot nuances. Citrus flavours and freshness are displayed on the palate, which lend verticality and enjoyment to the tasting experience.”
