Ornellaia Archivio Storico
The historical archive of Ornellaia, built in the beating heart of the winery, tells the story of this company through the different vintages of Ornellaia and testifies the capability of our wines to evolve over time and reach, after many years, their perfect state of maturation. Florentine architects Piero Guicciardini and Marco Magni, authors of the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo in Florence and many other projects for the enhancement of cultural heritage, welcomed the project, helping us to create this wonderful theatre for our most precious bottles of Ornellaia.
Kept undisturbed since birth in perfect conditions of preservation, the historical vintages of Ornellaia have remained hidden until today, ageing silently in the cellar day after day. Collectors now have the unique opportunity to discover the evolution of these wines, starting from the 1994 harvest, through the bottles of the Historical Archive. To guarantee the uniqueness of these bottles, a special Ornellaia Archivio Storico label has been created, as well as a single wooden case and a Prooftag™ that certifies its origin.
