- With vineyards planted in 1981, wines produced in 1985 and a state-of-the-art winery built a couple of years later, Tenuta dell' Ornellaia was, some say, Lodovico Antinori's Super Tuscan response to his cousin Nicola Incisa's neighboring Sassicaia and his brother Piero Antinori's Solaia. Later owned by the Mondavis, the known-for their-Merlot estate is now owned by the Frescobaldis. The 2017 Le Volte is 67% Merlot.
