Ornellaia Olio dell'Ornellaia Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2019 - 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.

This outstanding olive 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.
