67% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Sangiovese
Le Volte is a blend that combines the best terroirs in Tuscany. The softness of Merlot, the intensity of important structure of Cabernet Sauvignon supported by the vibrant personality of Sangiovese, creating a wine that reflects the philosophy of the Ornellaia Estate.
To enjoy it at its best, we recommend you let the wine ‘breathe’ at least 15-30 minutes before serving.
Lots of big, dark fruit and a lack of water in the grapes define the unique personality of the 2017 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia. This is a highly extracted and succulent expression that delivers abundant fruit sweetness. The key to this vintage was waiting for proper ripeness, says estate manager and winemaker Axel Heinz. “The grapes continued to get smaller throughout the summer,” he says. That lack of water resulted in very concentrated fruit, giving this wine a rich and modern feel as a result.
“An opulent Le Volte with ripe redcurrants, caramelized orange peel and lilacs on the nose. Medium body, fine but round tannins and a fruit-driven finish. Drink now.
