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.
Ornellaia has invited Japanese born artist Yutake Sone to be part of the Vendemmia d’Artista project and interpret “L’Eleganza” as the character of Ornellaia 2013. As with every edition, the artist has created a collection of large formats (100 Double Magnums (3L.), 8 Imperials (6L.) and a unique Salmanazar (9L.) as well as the single bottle label to be found in every standard case of Ornellaia 2013.
Yutaka Sone has always had a profound interest in landscapes and chose to interpret “Elegance” by organising a picnic with 2 fellow artists in the majestic marble quarries of Carrara in northern Tuscany. The art works tell the story of that day spent celebrating their friendship surrounded by the supreme elegance of mother nature. The large format labels are story-boards of that unique experience using the mediums of photography, screen printing and sculpture.
45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot
