Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia le Volte 2012

Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia le Volte 2012

750ML    
Sku: 023891

Le Volte is the expression of a carefully crafted blend. The cuvee brings together the best terroirs of Tuscany and combines the Mediterranean expression of opulence and generosity with structure and complexity. The softness of Merlot, the firm structure and depth of Cabernet Sauvignon supported by the vivacious personality of Sangiovese, create a unique blend which reflects the integrity and style which inspire the philosophy of the Tenuta dell’Ornellaia Estate.

Review
Le Volte is the base wine. It’s the only wine that we produce with Sangiovese, 50% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. It is a very easy wine, I usually say that we can accompany the wine with all they typical Tuscan food, Florintina steak, or a plate of salumi, or pizza too because it’s a very easy wine to understand because it’s a fruity wine, and very fresh wine.

Rating
James Suckling, 91 Pts :
"Dried meats, fennel, spices and mineral, with a firm acidity and chewy tannins. Greenish and austere now; will allow access in late 2015."

Vinous / Antonio Galloni, 91 Pts :
"Sweet roses, raspberries, sage, tobacco, underbrush, cinnamon and new leather jump from the glass in the 2012 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia. This is an unusually fresh, vibrant Le Volte with gorgeous energy and focus. Le Volte is now done half in oak and half in concrete, which keeps the flavors lively and fresh. The blend is 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon."


Wine maker notes
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
