Ornellaia
Ornus dell’Ornellaia, late harvest sweet wine of Petit Manseng, is cultivated in small parcels of land situated among our red varietal vineyards. The name Ornus dell’Ornellaia derives from the term “Fraxinus Ornus”, the Latin name for the Manna-Tree or Flowering Ash (in Italian, Orniello), which is known for its precious sap, an ancient sweetener since Biblical times, that now acts as a perfect link to the sweetness of Ornus dell’Ornellaia. Orniello is also the tree which has given its name to Ornellaia.
Dark golden colour.
There is abundant vibrant fruit on the nose, with notes of citrus, lemon zest, and minerally nuances.
In the mouth, a generous sweetness is well balanced by the tangy acidity and the long-lived, mineral-edged finish.
