Bolgheri - Tuscany
The Ornellaia Estate was founded in 1981 by Marchese Lodovico Antinori whose dream was to create a new, truly exceptional winery from a family property inherited from his mother.The estate once belonged to noble ´della Gherardesca´family and is located in an unspoiled area on Tuscany´s central coast.Inspired by his uncle´s experience in the neighboring estate of Sassicaia, Lodovico planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.The grapes wich would most benefit from the extraordinary natureOf the Estate´s “ terroir”.The dream becomes reality in 2001 when the US magazine “Wine Spectator” honored Ornellaia 1998 as the number one wine in the world. Same award goes 2004 to the Masseto 2001.
