Ornus 2009 (Half bottle)Tenuta dell' Ornellaia
|Brand||Tenuta dell' Ornellaia|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Ornus dell’Ornellaia, late harvest sweet wine of Petit Manseng, is cultivated in small parcels of land situated among our red varietal vineyards. The name Ornus dell’Ornellaia derives from the term "Fraxinus Ornus", the Latin name for the Manna-Tree or Flowering Ash (in Italian, Orniello), which is known for its precious sap, an ancient sweetener since Biblical times, that now acts as a perfect link to the sweetness of Ornus dell’Ornellaia. Orniello is also the tree which has given its name to Tenuta dell’Ornellaia.

Pungent, this dessert-style white has gooseberry, burnt caramel, roasted almond, apricot and spice flavors on a rich, elegant and harmonious frame. Fades gracefully, with a smoky toasted caramel aftertaste. Petit Manseng.
