Staying faithful to its core markets has enabled Ornellaia to build up its portfolio in Asia and pave the way for its single-vineyard icon, Masseto, its winemaker has said.
Tuscany’s Ornellaia, known for producing some of Italy’s most collectible reds, has released its first serious white wine in an effort to explore the potential of white varieties in Bolgheri.
Reviewing 25 years of Guado al Tasso, estate manager Renzo Cotarella explains how the success of Cabernet Franc in Bolgheri helped to move away from an early Australian-inspired style.
A collection of special edition Ornellaia raised €202,700 for charity in an auction held in Switzerland last week.
Magnums of 1959 Mouton Rothschild and an ex-cellar consignment of 1995 Ornellaia will lead Sotheby’s next London sale this month.
Ornellaia has reported a growing appetite for collecting wine as the Super Tuscan unveiled Swiss artist John Armleder as the latest collaborator in its “Vendemmia d’Artista” series.
A recently established Italian producer is positioning itself as a new addition to the region’s prestigious Super Tuscan movement.
Super Tuscan estate Ornellaia has raised CAD$126,500 (£69,000) through its annual charitable auction of large format bottles from the producer’s Vendemmia d’Artista series.
The Liv-ex indices continued their decline throughout May with first growth prices continuing to sink and non-Bordeaux fine wines strengthening their position in the market.
As Ornellaia unveiled the artistic collaboration for its latest 2011 vintage release, the Super Tuscan brand claimed that its wines are proving a “more solid” investment than gold or oil.
