Tasting Notes

An Armit Wines exclusive and a Faiveley monopole high on the slopes of Gevrey, this elegant and appealing wine has a bouquet of sweet plums and blackcurrants with notes of exotic smoke. On the palate, supple cherry flavours and seamless tannins are balanced by a refreshing raspberry and cassis character which leads to an impressive finish. A wine which could be approachable in a few years, it has the energy and structure for long ageing. Drink from 2021.

TASTING NOTES

Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfectly ripe...
