This famous Bolgheri estate was founded in 1981 by Marchese Ludovico Antinori.
In 1999 Robert Mondavi take a minority share of the estate, and by 2002 it takes full control of the Estate, and transfer 50% of shares to the Frescobaldi Family.
In 2005 the Frescobaldi family acquired the other 50% of shares from Constellation and became the sole owner of Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia.
Cabernet Sauvignon 56%, Merlot 27%, Cabernet Franc 10% and Petit Verdot 7%
Following on from the “Splash”, the label created by John Armleder for Ornellaia’s iconic bottle, and which represents a recurring them in his work, these extraordinary sculptures represent, in the artist’s vision, the moment of enchantment as the wine emerges forth from the bottle, captured in an instant and frozen forever in time.
Like a cloak that envelops the bottles, the glass sculpture transforms the bottle and everything inside it into a work of art, in an intense dialogue between dimensions of aesthetics and taste that are inseparable. The clear glass sculptures, each one unique due to the artisanal techniques used to create them have been created with a different finish for each large format of Ornellaia: iridescent for the 100 double magnums, chrome for the 10 imperials and gold leaf for the Salmanazar.
