(From 2012 Vintage)
2012 has given us a superb example of Le Volte dell'Ornellaia. The warm but not excessively-hot season favored ideal ripeness levels in the fruit. The wine appears its classic rich hue, and boasts a bouquet that is generously fruity and subtly spiced. The elegant, silk-smooth tannins are immediately impressive, beautifully complemented 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.
Really nice blend. Beautiful earthiness balanced by vivid fruit. Great food match.
