Le Volte dell’ Ornellaia
2017 will go down as one of the hottest and driest vintages this region has ever seen. This meant a lot less yield but the fruit was really concentrated and the flavor is intensified greatly! It also allowed the winemaker to pick the grapes at the perfect ripeness, and it sure shows in this instant classic vintage of Le Volte. The Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese blend are all vinified separately to maintain their identity in the final wine. The wine only sees 10 months in oak, as it was already so full of flavor and balance, that they wanted to maintain the freshness of the vintage. A bouquet of red fruit and spices meets you when you pour the first glass. After opening up after a quick decant, big dark fruit start on the palate, followed by hints of earth, spices and a great mouthfeel. The wine is framed by vibrant acidity and rich, smooth tannins and the finish is long and smooth. A great wine for the price!
