Ornellaia 'La Tensione'

Bolgheri Superiore


“2016 represents another immensely successful vintage highlighting all the virtues of Bolgheri’s climate: abundant
sunshine, without excessive heat, a dry summer to allow the grapes to achieve perfect ripeness and concentration, and just
about enough rain to avoid stress. All these elements combine to yield a wine that shows lush ripeness and crisp firmness,
opposing forces creating a sense of dense raciness we like to describe as “tension”.”

“A particularly dark and young colour is the prelude to a complex nose of black berries, spices and cedar. The palate is rich
and dense, balanced by a refined and firm tannic structure, lifted by a juicy and bright acidity.”
