A wine that Tenuta Ornellaia of Tuscany imagines graceful and sweet, capable of twirling and dancing in the sky like a swallow. The vinification involves a blend composed of 67% Merlot grapes, 13% Sangiovese grapes, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vinification was made separately for each blend, in small steel tanks respecting the different varietal characteristics during the fermentation phases. The alcoholic fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation, always in steel tanks. The aging phase lasted 10 months, partly in barriques, previously used for Ornellaia, the other part in cement tanks, to obtain a perfect balance between tannic structure and fruity expression.
