Conceived by Marchese Lodovico Anitnori as a marriage between a classic, Cabernet Sauvingnon based Bordeaux blend and the climate and terroir of Tuscany, Ornellaia has maintained a consistency of quality and prestige as impressive as any grower. A bottle of Ornellaia has always meant a good drink, a touchstone of the now classic “Super Tuscan” style.
Produced from 100% Merlot from the 16 acre Masseto vineyard, this has always been a special cuvee since its first vintage in 1986. Highly regarded as one of the best 100% varietal Merlot in the world, in line with Bordeuax’s finest of the Right Bank, Masseto is opulent, elegant, and stylish – a true Italian beauty.
