SUMMARYConsidered one of Italy’s leading Bordeaux-style red wines, Ornellaia was originally founded by Marchese Lodovico Antinori of the Antinori family. The Antinori family has been producing wine for several hundred years, and their wines are considered some of the most respected in all of Italy. Similarly to other Italian wineries with old family ties, Ornellaia is named after a woman – Ornella I Antinori, who was born two centuries ago. The estate produces two wines, with the second being a Merlot-labeled varietal wine Masseto. This second wine proved to be so popular that the winery’s name was changed to Ornellaia e Masseto to reflect its influence.
