Variazioni in Rosso dell'Ornellaia 2010
Variazioni in Rosso dell'Ornellaia 2010, a masterpiece from Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, showcases intense ruby red hues, revealing elegance and firm tannins accompanied by subtle fruity balsamic notes. Aromas of black fruit, pipe tobacco, mint, and hints of citrus create an enveloping bouquet. The individual fermentation of varietals in stainless steel tanks, followed by a 15-month aging process (75% in II-IV cycle barriques and 25% in new barriques), imparts complexity and structure.
After 12 months, the wine undergoes blending, followed by an additional 3-month period in barriques. Finally, it rests in the bottle for 6 months post-bottling. Labeled as Toscana IGT Rosso, Variazioni in Rosso dell’Ornellaia captures the uniqueness of each vintage, offering a symphony in every bottle. The 2010 vintage, described by the winemaker, perfectly expresses Cabernet Sauvignon with classic notes of red fruit, mint, cedar, and tobacco. The palate features a slender and refined tannic structure, complemented by complex balsamic and fruity aromas.
This wine offers an intense sensory experience, unfolding a symphony of fruit, aromatic herbs, and spices. Its muscular tannic structure is balanced by a velvety and dense texture, a result of meticulous fermentation and expert aging. Variazioni in Rosso dell'Ornellaia is a journey through vintage diversity, celebrating oenological mastery and the Tuscan terroir where it originates.
