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.

In 2011, Le Volte is 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese and 20% other grapes. Score: 89 Points Antonio Galloni
