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 yet vibrant fruit with a silky and generous texture underlined by a fresh and lively acidity.
Axel Heinz, Winemaker

Part of the original “Super-Tuscans”, the eponymous wine, Ornellaia, is an ode to the Mediterranean character of this stretch of the Tuscan coast. Far from resting on their laurels, the winemaking team, headed by maverick estate director Axel Heinz, possess a full range of vibrant, long-lived, elegant wines that speak loudly about the potential of their unique terroir. Their range includes red wines, whites, dessert, grappa and even olive oil – all crafted with the same meticulous attention.
