“Ah, Italy — what a beautiful, hedonistic, disorganised, frustrating country! Italy can provide wine lovers with so many distinctive, unique flavours and styles, bottles full of Italian verve and creativity.”
— Jancis Robinson MW
Solaia: Solaia is a 50 acre (20 hectare) vineyard with a southwestern exposure situated at some 1325 feet (400 metres) above sea level at the Tignanello estate. The wine is only produced in high quality vintages and was not produced in 1980, 1981, 1983, 1984, and 1992.
Tenuta dell’ Ornellaia: In 1981, Marchese Lodovico Antinori breathed new life into Tenuta dell’ Ornellaia, an estate whose potential had been ignored for decades. With the help of Andre Tchelistcheff, the famous agronomist, Antinori planted the first French vines in Bolgheri, which lies in the heart of Tuscany’s coastal region, Maremma.
