Ornellaia: A Wine to Know

by Westgarth Wines September 30, 2019

Ornellaia, one of the original Super Tuscans was first sold in 1985. It is a wine made in Tuscany designed to satisfy a thirst for wines made of French grapes. Cabernet Sauvignon drives the blend of Ornellaia, which has an impressive lineup of wine impresarios in its history: Robert Mondavi, Michel Rolland and Frescobaldi, the current owner, have all played parts in the wine's history. Ornellaia also makes Massetto, one of the most prized single-vineyard Merlots in the world--bottles fetch handsome prices. The maritime influence and high-density vine planting are some of the keys to the wine's stellar profile. Read on for more on Ornellaia!
