2019 marks the second vintage of this partnership of two renowned wineries- Dalla Valle and Tuscany’s Ornellaia. Maya and Naoko Dalla Valle and Axel Heinz and Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja of Ornellaia are longtime friends and stewards for the legacies of their estates, half a world away. They possess the innate sensitivity to place and process that generates soulful wines for each label, vintage after vintage. And it is what led them to create DVO. If Dalla Valle and Ornellaia embody the best of their respective traditions, DVO is a testament to a new expression of those elements. Old World elegance and New World freedom; Napa Valley and Tuscany; looking back while always looking forward: DVO is the alchemy of all those things and more, applied to Napa Valley fruit with magical results. While the 2018 vintage may have been a tough act to follow, the 2019s stand out as another classic, idyllic Napa Valley vintage to remember. Comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the 2019 DVO exhibits “a crescendo of black and red currents, violet, and cassis. The 15% influence of Cabernet Franc seamlessly ties everything together with baking spices and crushed summer herbs. Velvety and polished tannins give the wine a prolonged and elegant finish.” This wine will be ready to ship December 5th.
