Ornellaia Olio dell'Ornellaia Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2017 - 50cl
Ornellaia’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil is obtained by pressing the olives from the 2000 trees, many of them over 100 years old, that grow upon the grounds of the Estate.
The cultivars in the olive groves include Frantoio, Moraiolo, and Leccino, as well as more local cultivars, such as Gremignolo di Bolgheri, Olivastro di Suvereto, and the Ornellaia Cultivar, named after the farm that has now become the Estate.
Harvesting is performed exclusively by hand, with pickers selecting only the best-quality fruit from each tree, thereby ensuring that the olives remained sound and fresh. To prevent oxidation and obtain oil of the highest possible quality, the freshly-picked olives are transferred immediately to the olive press, where they are pressed within two hours of their arrival. The freshly-pressed oil, with its marvellous fruity aromas and rich antioxidant properties, is filtered and stored in temperature-controlled steel tanks to best preserve its organoleptic properties.
The oil appears a rich green, luminous and clear, with a bouquet that releases delicate, appealing notes of aromatic herbs. The palate is self-confident and well-balanced in all its components, hinting of almonds and with that peppery, slightly bitter note that distinguishes olives at the moment of their peak ripeness.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you! If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Special Instructions' at the checkout.
We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please either 'ASK A QUESTION' or leave us a message in the 'Special Instructions' at checkout.
