Le Volte dell'Ornellaia combines the Mediterranean expression of opulence and generosity with structure and complexity. The approachable style of Le Volte dell'Ornellaia, a blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, reflects the philosophy and savoir-faire of Ornellaia. The 2014 vintage was the most challenging in our memory, but has nevertheless enabled us to produce high quality wines that give immense pleasure. The late ripening of the grapes have made it possible to express the crispness and freshness of the fruit to best effect. What is striking is the high quality of the tannins on the palate: silky, refined and without any sharp edges, albeit with a lower density than in hotter vintages. Le Volte dell'Ornellaia is a balanced, harmonious and very drinkable wine thanks in particular to the beautiful Merlots of 2014.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Le Volte (70% Merlot, 15% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) shows some of the weakness of the vintage - whereas the top shelf wines from Ornellaia in this difficult year are absolutely impressive. Le Volte seems to have suffered from less generous fruit selection. The bouquet shows moderate intensity with dried cherry, some distant spice and toasted almond. This is an easy drinking red to pair with your favorite dish at your local trattoria. Drink it up within the next two years. Some 450,000 bottles are produced.

Wine EnthusiastAn easy-drinking blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, this opens with aromas of red berry, toast, herb and roasted coffee bean. The soft palate offers black cherry, mocha and a hint of coffee alongside bright acidity and silky tannins. Drink now.
