About

90

"The 2011 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia (a 50-30-20 blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon) is a gorgeous and silky smooth red wine that imparts bright tones of red cherry, blackberry, sweet spice and chocolate. The wine-s youthful freshness and fruit-forward mouthfeel is ultimately what makes it such a pleasure to drink. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020."

Product Description:

"Le Volte dell’Ornellaia 2011 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" -Winery
