Wine Description

Le Volte dell’Ornellaia combines the Mediterranean expression of opulence and generosity with structure and complexity. The approachable style of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, a blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, reflects the philosophy and savoir-faire of Ornellaia. The different varietals were fermented separately in small steel tanks to maintain their varietal characteristics intact. The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, again in steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 10 months, partly in barrique used for Ornellaia and partly in cement tanks, to obtain the perfect balance between tannic structure and an expression of fresh fruit.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) The wine appears its classic rich hue, and boasts a bouquet that isgenerously fruity and subtly spiced. The elegant, silk-smooth tannins are immediately impressive, beautifullycomplemented by a vibrant, refreshing acidity.

Blend: 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon

    A wonderful wine. Not heavy. Very smooth pairing well with a spicy beef dish and also a wonderful pasta dish. But also good on its own. Lovely just to sip and enjoy.
