Ornellaia Le Volte 2020
One of the most acclaimed Italian wineries, Tenuta dell’Ornellaia is famous for crafting some of the most sought-after wines from Bolgheri. Le Volte dell’Ornellaia combines a generous Mediterranean expression with structure and complexity, reflecting the philosophy of Ornellaia. It's a fine wine for spontaneous wine lovers and needs no ceremony.
Comprises a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The different varietals were manually harvested and then go through a double sorting selection. The grapes are then fermented separately in small steel tanks to maintain their varietal characteristics. The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, again in steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 10 months, partly in barrique used for Ornellaia and partly in cement tanks, to obtain the perfect balance between tannic structure and an expression of fresh fruit.
“Le Volte dell’Ornellaia 2018 perfectly reflects the characteristics of the vintage, revealing great elegance and balance. Its nose is wonderfully complex, very fruity with delicate floral and spicy notes. The tannic and smooth texture is striking on the palate, ending in a crisp and lively finish.” — Olga Fusari, Winemaker.
