Ornellaia 'Le Volte dell'Ornellaia' Toscana IGT 2017, Tuscany, Italy

£39.60Price
  • PRESS: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 points. "Lots of big, dark fruit and a lack of water in the grapes define the unique personality of the 2017 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia. This is a highly extracted and succulent expression that delivers abundant fruit sweetness. The key to this vintage was waiting for proper ripeness, says estate manager and winemaker Axel Heinz. "The grapes continued to get smaller throughout the summer," he says. That lack of water resulted in very concentrated fruit, giving this entry-level wine a rich and modern feel as a result."

    Winemaker Notes:

    Son of a particularly hot, dry year, Le Volte dell’ Ornellaia 2017 is characterized by its usual deep ruby red color. A pleasant bouquet of ripe red fruits and spices is sustained on the palate by crisp acidity and an open, enveloping tannic structure.
