In 1981, Marchese Lodovico Antinori breathed fresh vitality into Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, a domain that had been overlooked for decades. Assisted by the renowned agronomist Andre Tchelistcheff, Antinori introduced the first French vines to Bolgheri, nestled in the heart of Tuscany's coastal region, Maremma. This estate produces some of Tuscany's most exceptional Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. In 2002, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia came under the ownership of Marchesi de' Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi, and it is now solely possessed by Marchesi de' Frescobaldi.

Ornellaia has solidified its position as one of Italy's and the world's emblematic wine estates. Committed to crafting enchanting and lavish wines brimming with Mediterranean character and finesse, the estate mirrors the distinct terroir of Bolgheri on the Tuscan coastline. The unique soils and growth conditions of Bolgheri, coupled with an unwavering dedication to excellence, culminate in the globally acclaimed wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc — wines that have endeared themselves to countless wine enthusiasts worldwide.

"Bright and young on the nose, smells like freshly-picked red cherries, almost like sweets, blackcurrant and cherry sweets braced by bramble fruits and soft perfume. Softly creamy and chalky on the palate, strawberries and red cherries have a chalky texture and quite a perfume to the flavor profile. There is fruit there but then it's subdued a little by a savory wood aspect, sweet vanilla and spiced clove that edges the palate. Drinking Window 2023 - 2035."
-Decanter, 93 Points

"Attractive aromas of blue fruit with slate and black-licorice character. It’s full-bodied with juicy fruit and an orange-peel undertone. Wet earth, some fresh sage and rosemary, too. I like the Mediterranean flavors in this vintage."
-James Suckling, 93 Points

"Ruby red with purple reflections, Le Volte dell’ Ornellaia 2020 has a vinous bouquet, releasing a complexity of aromas ranging from ripe red fruits, to Mediterranean scrub, up to delicate notes of tobacco and spices. The mouthfeel is soft and silky, but at the same time supported by a lively acidity that gives us a crisp, persistent finish."
