Winemaker's Notes

“Soft and Pretty”

93 Points – James Suckling

Ornellaia is among the most iconic wine estates in Italy, dedicated to producing charming and opulent wines, full of Mediterranean character and finesse, reflecting the unique terroir in Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast. The combination of Bolgheri’s soils and growing conditions, and what can only be characterized as a total obsession with excellence, result in the world-class wines from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that so many wine lovers across the world have come to cherish. While Ornellaia’s flagship wine is costly and needs cellaring to fully enjoy it, Le Volte is the inexpensive, everyday option that gives the Italian wine lover access to this great estate. It also happens to be the only wine in the lineup that features an indigenous Italian varietal – Sangiovese is blended with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. James Suckling ranked it at 93 points saying, “There’s purity of fruit here with crushed plums, flowers, fresh sage and rosemary on both the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied, yet soft and pretty at the finish. Very drinkable now.”
