Product Description:

"Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfrectly ripe yet vibrant fruit with a silky and generous texture underlined by a fresh and lively acidity." - Winery
