Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia, produced with a predominance of Sauvignon Blanc, expresses a true Mediterranean character. With its ripe fruit and firm structure, the terroir perfectly conveys all the potential necessary to produce a white wine of great finesse.
After a 12-hour gravity settling, 33% of the must was put into used oak barriques, 33% in new barriques and 33% into stainless steel. Fermentation temperatures did not exceed 18-20°C, and the wine did not go through malolactic fermentation. Maturation on the fine lees lasted six months, with regular bâtonnage through the entire period. The various lots of wine were assembled into the final blend, and the wine was given a light fining before bottling. The wine was aged a further twelve months in the bottle before release.
Varietal notes of citrus and white peach to impressions of flinty mineral and creamy butter. The full-bodied palate shows impressive weight, with an aromatic complex of fruit and crisp mineral, beautifully supported by a vibrant acidity.
