Brilliant straw yellow. The bouquet is very plesant and fragrant, characterized by neat sensations of citrus ftuits and golden apples, on a flowery background that reminds fresh hints of meadow flowers and a persistent vegetal note of sage.
At the palate firstly stands out an excellent freshness, well balanced by a pleasant roundness, featured by notes of meadow flowers and golden apples. The aftertaste is long and fragrant, with hits of fresh almond.
In the Sicilian dialect, “Lamùri” means “love,” which is a good way to describe the romance surrounding this lush, graceful Sicilian wine. Winemaker Alberto Tasca credits the elegance of the finished wine to the unique sandy soil and cool microclimate of his vineyard, which is set at an altitude of 2,500 ft. This wine is made entirely from hand-harvested Nero d'Avola grapes, aged in French oak barriques for one year after fermentation to add additional finesse.
Ripeness and elegance are the two qualities that can best describe Ornellaia 2009. Born from a vintage which began cool then turned hot, it was necessary to take painstaking care during harvest in order to preserve the grapes’ crisp acidity and aromatic complexity. The wine’s fragrances are generous and cleanly-defined, with rich, well-ripened fruit, complemented by chocolate and balsamic notes of aromatic herbs. On the palate, silky-smooth and spacious, with glossy tannins. A lively, refreshing acidity lifts a lingering finish.
