Tenuta dell’Ornellaia is an Italian wine producer in the DOC Bolgheri in Tuscany, known as a producer of “Super Tuscan” wine. Ornellaia is considered one of Italy’s leading Bordeaux-style red wines. The estate also produces a second wine, Le Serre Nuove, the blend Le Volte, the Merlot varietal labeled wine Masseto, in addition to estate production of grappa and olive oil.
In 2012, the winery’s name was changed from “Tenuta dell’Ornellaia” to “Ornellaia e Masseto”, in recognition of the increasing importance of the Merlot-based wine. The wines of Ornellaia have been a driving force behind the success of Super Tuscan wines outside of Italy, and have helped elevate the genre to high acclaim.
