Ornellaia Announces Launch of the 2020 Vintages of Le Serre Nuove Dell’Ornellaia and Poggio Alle Gazze Dell’Ornellaia


The Mediterranean style of the genius loci of the Bolgheri estate

New York, NY, September 21, 2022 – Ornellaia, the legendary Bolgheri winery, is pleased to present the latest 2020 vintage of Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC Rosso and the elegant white Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia Toscana IGT Bianco, both perfect embodiment of the distinctive Bolgheri wine are region.

Le Serre Nuove dell’ Ornellaia, the second wine from Ornellaia, is the most direct expression of the winery’s style. A precious blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine is made with the same passion and attention to detail as Ornellaia. Each vintage is a blend of elegant gentleness and Bolgheri-style complexity, ready to mature in the bottle for many years.

Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia, made mainly from Sauvignon Blanc with a touch of Vermentino and Verdicchio, owes its elegant Mediterranean style to the special microclimate that characterizes the winery. This year, the white wine is enhanced by the Ambassadors of Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia project, which pays tribute to the connection with the sea and the land of origin.

Axel Heinz, Estate Director of Ornellaia, describes 2020 as an exceptional vintage with great potential: “In terms of winemaking, the 2020 vintage will be remembered for its energy, which led to the creation of wines with great potential. Over time, it has been considered one of Bolgheri’s greatest vintages, such as 2006, 2010 and 2016. The land has responded to the conditions, imparting precise characteristics to each variety. Through a clear vision, patient study of the soil and the best exposures, as well as the selection of the vines to be planted, it has been possible to convey the genius loci of this unique wine region, not only in the ruby ​​red of Le Serre Nuove dell’ Ornellaia, but also in the straw yellow of Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia.”

After a mild and rainy winter, spring slowly began, protecting the buds from frost. A wet June was followed by a long period of drought until the end of August. The dry conditions encouraged a slow and steady veraison. The temperature changes between day and night ensured that the grapes could develop their full aromatic potential and the right acidity, while the early harvest and the lack of water stress allowed the white grapes to develop all their wonderful typical aromas.

At the Ornellaia winery, each variety and each plot is vinified separately to ensure the utmost respect for the different characteristics of the grape with minimal human intervention. Olga Fusari, the Ornellaia winemaker, explains: “With its deep ruby ​​red hue and violet reflections, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia 2020 fearlessly reveals a clear and generous aromatic expression, marked by ripe red fruit aromas. Soft, round and beguiling in the glass, the wine is full-bodied and shows a great balance between structure, richness and elegance.” She continues: “With its bright straw yellow colour, Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia 2020 shows a remarkable aromatic intensity: forest and white flowers accompanied by notes of white peach, sage and herbs that unfold in the glass. The wine fills the palate elegantly and boldly on tasting, showing the right balance between freshness, acidity and density. The finish is lively, persistent and spicy.” These are wines that show attention to detail, character and terroir.
