Grapes for #Ornellaia are hand harvested and then selected manually on a double sorting table. The different grapes and different parcels are vinified separately and then undergo 12 months aging in barriques, 70% new and 30% used once before. After this, the wine is assembled and goes back into barriques for another six months.
