Merlot/Cab Sauv/Sangiovese Blend * 75cl * 13.5% ABV * Tuscany, Italy
Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is the expression of a carefully crafted blend. The cuvée brings together the best terroirs of Tuscany and combines the Mediterranean expression of opulence and generosity with structure and complexity. The softness of Merlot, the firm structure and depth of Cabernet Sauvignon supported by the vivacious personality of Sangiovese, create a unique blend which reflects the integrity and style which inspire the philosophy of the Ornellaia Estate.
"Le Volte dell’Ornellaia 2014 faithfully reflects the distinctive characteristics of its vintage. The wine is rich and full-bodied, with all of its components in perfect balance. Intense in both colour and bouquet, it releases profound notes of dark berryfruit, sweet violets, and spice. The palate offers a broad vein of finely-woven, glossy tannins, creating a velvety mouthfeel . Impressions of fruit and spice lace the progression, which proceeds leisurely to an energy-laden finish enlivened by a tangy acidity." Winemaker's note
