  • This cuvée is one of the stars of Bolgheri – the appellation in the Tuscan Coast reputed for its Super Tuscans. A blend of Bordeaux grape varieties cultivated on varied terroirs which, once blended, contribute to the complexity of the wine. After a period of aging, it gives off a rich variety of aromas: ripe black fruits lifted by hints of vanilla, smoky and spiced notes. The wine is opulent, round and generous, enveloping the palate with its flavours of black olives.

    Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is a 91-hectare domaine (76 hectares of which are currently cultivated) created in 1981 by Marquis Lodovico Antinori, and is planted with typical Bordeaux varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot). In 2002, it was sold to the Californian group Robert Mondavi Winery, then in June of that year 50% was sold to Marchesi de Frescobaldi, a Tuscan wine-producing family. Marchesi de Frescobaldi became the sole proprietor in 2005. In a very short time, the premium domaine has risen to the top tier of the rankings. The vines are planted on the coastal strip of Tuscany and have produced some of the very finest crus (Masseto, Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia – Ornellaia’s second wine – and Le Volte. Every effort is made here to produce the best wines on the planet: rigorous vine management, manual harvesting in crates, and vinification supervised by leading oenologists. Ornellaia (DOC Superiore) is barrel-aged for 18 months. The Bolgheri terroir has created a refined and elegant red wine; Ornellaia is complex yet suave and structured.
