Tenuta Dell'ORNELLAIA Tuscany "Le Volte" 2020

Wine Region: Tuscany - Italy

Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese

Tasting notes: "A blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, the Ornellaia 2020 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia shows medium darkness and texture followed by a very primary and fruit-forward bouquet. There is a generous display of cherry, cassis and wild plum. On second nose, this easy and straightforward Tuscan blend reveals hints of spice, cardamon and polished river stone. In a hot vintage like this, the wine comes together nicely and rather effortlessly." - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

About the winery:
In the early 1970s, Mario Incisa Della Rocchetta kickstarted the "Super Tuscans" category with Sassicaia. In 1981, his cousin, Lodovico Antinori, founded the Ornellaia estate on property neighbouring the Sassicaia estate. Ornellaia released its first Tuscan Bordeaux blend in 1985 and celebrated the opening of its winemaking facility two years later. Ornellaia is located on the Tuscan Coast, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the section of the Northern Maremma between Livorno and the island of Elba. In 1991 Michel Rolland joined the team as a consulting oenologist and created Le Volte.
