Tenuto Della Ornellaia le Volte 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Winery notes 2007 began with a very mild winter with below average rainfall which resulted in bud break about 10 days earlier than usual. Mild spring weather with rains that came at the right time allowed optimal vegetative development with flowering that was again earlier than usual. The development of the grapes took place in June which was rainy throughout Tuscany. Summer finally came in July which was hot and dry while temperatures dropped off in August and there were the classic mid-month thunderstorms that slowed the ripening of the grapes delaying the date of the harvest to its usual time. September was perfect with an abundance of sunlight accompanied by warm but not excessively hot weather and almost no rain conditions that resulted in the slow steady ripening of the grapes with concentration of aromas and polyphenols and no signs of overripening.
