Tenuta del Ornellaia Le Volte Toscana IGT 2016

13% abv

Deep, dark purple, full bodied blackberries, stewed plums, black cherries, a little funky. Dry, more dark fruit on the palate, hint of tobacco, nicely balanced, some cedar 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 perfrectly ripe yet vibrant fruit with a silky and generous texture underlined by a fresh and lively acidity.’

Axel Heinz, Winemaker

A Mediterranean expression of generosity with structure and complexity, reflecting the philosophy of Ornellaia. Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is a fine wine for everyday. following varietal (50% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon) ferments in stainless steel, the wine was then aged for 10 months, partly in barrique used for Ornellaia and partly in cement tanks, to obtain balance between tannic structure and fresh fruit.

The Ornellaia estate was first the creation of Ludovico Antinori. His desire to set his own standards apart from the family firm had led him to the Tuscan Coast at Bolgheri, adjacent to his cousin Nicolo Incia's Tenuta San Guido of Sassicaia. The combination of soil and man made this one of the pre-eminent modern wineries of Italian fine wine. The turn of the century saw the estate move into the owenrship of that oter Tuscan royal wine family, Frescobaldi, following a short period of joint ownership with Calfornia's Mondavi. The Bordeaux influenced wines of the estate are icons of International Styled Italian wine.
