With the help of Andre Tchelistcheff, the famous agronomist, Marchese Lodovico Antinori planted the first French vines in Bolgheri which lies in the heart of Tuscany’s coastal region, Maremma in the early 1980’s. It’s safe to say the region has never been the same since.
Ornellaia has established itself among the iconic wine estates in Italy (and beyond). The estate is dedicated to producing charming, rich and opulent wines, full of Mediterranean character and finesse, reflecting the estate’s unique terroir in Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast.
Ornellaia is one third of what has come to be known as the Big 3 Super Tuscans, along with Tignanello (the first Super Tuscan) and Sassicaia. Each year, these are some of the most gorgeous, age-worthy bottlings and the magnificent 2019 bottling from Ornellaia is no different. This is still a baby, but already is starting to show it’s potential as a near perfect wine, so it’s no surprising that this one comes with all the big scores. I only have six bottles total. This should make a few lucky collectors very, very happy.
