Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia le Volte 2012

Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia le Volte 2012

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 dellíOrnellaia Estate.

Le Volte is the base wine. Itís 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 itís a very easy wine to understand because itís a fruity wine, and very fresh wine.

2011: Monica Larner, Wine Advocate: The 2011 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia (a 50-30-20 blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon) is a gorgeous and silky smooth red wine that imparts bright tones of red cherry, blackberry, sweet spice and chocolate. The wine's youthful freshness and fruit-forward mouthfeel is ultimately what makes it such a pleasure to drink. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
