Tasting Notes

Juicy blackberries and cherries with notes of wild herbs and spice. Vivacious and refreshing this is a complete pleasure to drink from release. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese Le Volte is a wonderful introduction to the wines of this great estate.

Reviews & Scores

The 2011 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia is juicy, expressive and radiant in this vintage. Sweet dark cherries, flowers, tobacco and mint all flesh out in a wine that impresses for its harmony and supple, gracious personality. At times Le Volte has been a bit different in style than the rest of the wines, here, but the 2011 is quite similar to the rest of the range. In 2011, Le Volte is 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese and 20% other grapes.

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.

TASTING NOTES

Modern but restrained fruit with a tremendous floral scent, dark chocolate and leather. Manages to tame the wild tannins of Nebbiolo, giving a fine abrasion on the palate and bright acidity. Remarkably delicate structure, and very much drinkable now.

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant wine with an intense bouquet of dark cassis and plums with a rich, smooth palate of juicy, ripe blackberry and plum flavours balanced by velvety tannins and a refreshing finish. This wine is delicious now and will age well for a further decade. Drink 2015 – 2024.
