The world-famous Tenuta dell'Ornellaia was founded in 1981 by Lodovico Antinori and today belongs to the Frescobaldi wine dynasty. The family from Florence has existed for 700 years and is known for its innovative and creative pursuit of perfection. As owners of several excellent wineries, they approach these projects responsibly, competently and decisively, always making sure to preserve authenticity.
The success story
Attention to detail and thoughtful handling throughout the entire production process ensure grapes of the highest quality every year. The winery with 91ha of vineyards is located at the foot of the mountains near Bolgheri, very close to the sea. In the hot summer months, the sea breeze blows through the vines, while in winter the mountains protect them from the cold northern winds.
The different soils, marine, alluvial and volcanic in origin, have been precisely mapped and selected for the appropriate grape varieties. At Ornellaia, the time of harvest is given the greatest importance for the quality of the wine. Analyzes of the grapes are carried out with the greatest precision in order to identify the moment when the tannins are ripe and the aromatic potential
The grape varieties have fully developed and the freshness in the grapes is still fully present.
The base wines are tasted every day in order to decide after 12 months of maturation which characters are in front of you and which of the 3 wines they are used for. The third wine Le Volte is made from the youngest vines and is intended to provide an insight into the wine world of Ornellaia. Since 1997 there has also been a second wine, the Serre Nuove, whose base wines were previously also used in the cuvée from the large, sought-after first wine Ornellaia - to the absolute first wine Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore.
