Ornellaia 'Le Volte dell'Ornellaia' Toscana IGT Rosso 2019
The Ornellaia Estate was founded by Marchese Lodovico Antinori in 1981, very close to the Castello di Bolgheri in Tuscany. It underwent several changes of ownership until it was taken over by the Frescobaldi family in 2005. Located near Bolgheri with around 192 hectares in total encompassing the vineyards, winery and the adjacent Bellaria property just North of Bolgheri. One of the driving forces of the Super Tuscan movement the estates Ornellaia, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc is a seductive and evocative wine that has won much praise from wine critics and drinkers alike with its impressive colour, concentration and intensity of aroma and flavour.
Le Volte 2019 a blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon ''gives us a Le Volte dell’Ornellaia with great balance and expressivity. With its bright ruby-red colour, intense scents of red berries and rose petals are clearly distinguishable on the nose, while on the palate the taste is full-bodied and enveloping, characterised by dense tannins and a vibrant acidity which make this a highly pleasant and enjoyable wine.” Olga Fusari - Winemaker - December 2020
