Tuscany, ITALY
$54. 99
$659.88 Dozen
ABV: 14%
Closure: Cork

A blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon with the different varietals fermented separately in small steel tanks to maintain their varietal characteristics. The wine was then aged for 10 months, partly in barriques used previously for Ornellaia and partly in concrete tanks to obtain the perfect balance between tannic structure and an expression of fresh fruit.

Other Reviews....
The Ornellaia 2021 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia offers bright and youthful fruit with dark cherry, cassis, spice and red rose. This wine is composed of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. You feel the acidity of the Italian grape and the rich fruit from the two French varietals. The wine is tonic and tight with mid-weight intensity. This is the entry-level red from one of Italy's most iconic estates. Drink 2023 - 2026.

A firm and silky wine with bark, berry, chocolate and light coffee aromas and flavors. Medium body. Creamy textured finish. Merlot with cabernet sauvignon and some montepulciano. Drinkable and fresh. Drink now.
