Wine Ornellaia

“The wine should reflect the terroir” — this is the philosophy of Ornellaia

Terroir — all in one word is a combination of such factors as weather, soil, grape variety, cultural traditions - everything that with the help of the winemaker’s hands gives the wine its unique character!

The search for absolute quality and new path of development of Italian winemaking in the Tuscan region led to the idea of creating Ornellaia.

In a unique blend for Tuscany:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Cabernet Franc
  • Merlot

Soon Masseto appears from 100% Merlot, the wine which is now considered one of the best in the world.

Sensing the trend, the Mondavi and Frescobaldi families soon buy Ornellaia from Antinori and become the owners, at the moment, of the most elite wine house in Italy.

The grapes are harvested by hand on the slopes of the Tuscan coast Bolgheri.
