The history of Tenuta dell’Ornellaia begins in the 1980s when the brothers Lodovico and Piero Antinori divided the Bolgheri property belonging to the family. Lodovico started with the Ornellaia project with a very clear idea in mind, that is, to create a wine business in Tuscany on the Californian model, where quality and experimentation and then marketing and brand creation went hand in hand. So the Russian oenologist André Tchelistcheff, who had achieved very important results in the creation of the Napa Valley as we know it today, and Federico Staderini, a talented young man, were consulted. Around the beginning of the nineties, the collaboration with Michel Rolland and other important names on the world wine scene began. Around the end of 1999 the company was acquired by the Californian giant Mondavi and the Frescobaldi family. The new group immediately invested in the quality of the products by calling the oenologist Thomas Duroux from Bordeaux, and placing Leonardo Raspini at the head of the agronomic sector department. In 2005 the Frescobaldis acquired the entire estate and hired Axel Heinz, who is still the winemaker on the estate. The continuous succession of properties and important figures in the world wine field has meant that in just a few years this reality has become a point of reference not only for the area but throughout the world.

Grapes used

Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Franc

Petit Verdot

Production method

The grapes are harvested by hand and selected on a sorting table. They are then vinified separately depending on the parcels; the fermentation takes place partly in stainless steel and partly in concrete vats. Subsequently the wine ages for 18 months in barriques (in which the blending is done after the first 12) and subsequently for another 12 months before being introduced on the market.

Alcohol content


Tasting notes

The wine is an intense dark ruby ​​red color with garnet shades. Upon olfactory examination we distinctly perceive the fruity sensations of cherry jam, black cherries in alcohol, blackberry jam, raspberries and berries, peppermint leaves, pepper, dried purple flowers, flint, vanilla, licorice, sandalwood, black pepper and tobacco. In the mouth the attack is sumptuous, broad and enveloping, soft and warm. Extraordinarily balanced by a notable freshness and elegant, suggested and very ripe tannins. The persistence in the mouth is considerable, leaving a pleasant hint of licorice and other spices; the aftertaste is very fine and elegant, confirming the notes previously perceived on the nose.

Possible combinations

Bottle for special occasions. Ideal with game, red meat dishes and/or medium-aged cheeses.

The history of the Frescobaldi family in Tuscany is often the story of Tuscany itself; tradition and roots date back as far as the 1300s, when Dino Frescobaldi, a poet friend of Dante Alighieri, returned to him the first seven cantos of the Divine Comedy, allowing him to complete the work. Around the same time, the family acquired some estates in the Chianti area and began producing and selling wine. Many centuries later, in about 1855, they were the ones to plant some international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay right here in Tuscany. The 1900s was a century of great revolution for Italian agriculture and therefore for the company as well; production methods were innovated and new possessions were acquired thanks to the wise guidance of Vittorio, Ferdinando, and Leonardo Frescobaldi. Today, the baton has been passed to Lamberto Frescobaldi, a member of the thirtieth generation of the family, who, armed with the knowledge he has acquired, manages the family heritage. The company boasts among its estates Castello di Nipozzano and Castello di Pomino in the Chianti Rufina area, Rémole alle Sieci, Tenuta di Perano in Gaiole in Chianti, one of the family's most recent acquisitions, Gorgona on the homonymous penitentiary island, Tenuta Castiglioni in Montespertoli, Tenuta Castelgiocondo in Montalcino, Tenuta Ammiraglia in the Maremma, and the latest addition Tenuta Calimaia in Montepulciano. The Frescobaldi family manages and owns Ornellaia in Bolgheri.
