Ornus dell’Ornellaia is inspired by a passion for our land and by the desire to explore its potential and produce great ageing sweet wines, aided by the mild and especially breezy season typical of Autumn in Bolgheri. Ornus dell’Ornellaia 2014 is an intense golden colour with some hints of bronze. Complex candied orange peel, dried apricot and caramel aromas envelop the sense of smell. The palate is a great balance between the sugars and a ripe and lively acidity with flavours of apricot, sweet tobacco and slightly bitter caramel. A rich wine that is sweet but by no means heavy.
