"The 2010 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is big, juicy and expressive in this vintage. There is firmness of tannin that is unusual for this wine but that works beautifully here in preserving freshness and structure. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint and licorice are some of the many notes that emerge from this beautifully balanced Le Volte. In 2010 the blend is 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. As always, Le Volte is made from a blend of estate-grown grapes and purchased wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017."
"A blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon this – as one would expect from Ornellaia – is a polished wine bursting with red and black cherries. The glossy, rich palate boasts more cherry fruit, complemented by savoury notes such as olives, thyme and sage."
