LIGURIA

With the region’s capital Genoa sitting in the middle, Liguria is in north-western Italy, a narrow strip along the coastline abutting France, with the Alps and the Appennines as backdrop. The region features beautiful rolling hills, ancient woodland and sandy coves as well as those impressive mountains. The combination of the cooling Mediterranean and the protection of the hills make this a temperate region with plenty of rainfall. With Piedmont and Tuscany as neighbours one could be forgiven for expecting the region to produce red wines, however it is aromatic, food loving whites that are the region’s speciality.

The wine’s structure makes it particularly suitable for the dishes of traditional Ligurian cuisine, such as “testarolo” pancakes with mushrooms, Ligurian-style stuffed pasta, anchovy and squid pies.

TASTING NOTES

Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfectly ripe...
