DVO: Dalla Valle & Ornellaia


DVO: Dalla Valle & Ornellaia

Cat Stephani |
An Inspiring New Collaboration
Back in the early eighties, just as Gustav and Naoko Dalla Valle were settling into the hillsides of Napa’s Oakville, an inspired Ludovico Antinori planted Bordeaux varieties across a scrubby patch of land in Bolgheri along the Tuscan coast. While Dalla Valle would go on to produce some of the most deeply seductive expressions behind Napa Valley’s burgeoning era, Ornellaia’s bold Super Tuscan blends founded a new pillar of style, one that redefined the notion of the power and elegance capable from an Italian red.

The inspiration continues today with an exciting new collaboration between the world class estates. Daughter of the late Gustav, Maya Dalla Valle is paying homage to her father’s Northern Italian heritage through an emerging partnership with Axel Heinz, renown winemaker of Ornellaia & Masseto acclaim, as well as long time mentor to the second generation Napa vigneron.       

With an expressive core of Californian fruit deftly guided by Tuscan elegance, DVO is the latest cuvee to bring the best of two worlds together. Join us in discovering our full range from these storied estates.
