Red Wine /// Bordeaux Blend // Bolgheri / Italy
Ornellaia is with Sassacaia in terms of prestige and standing as the original Sup-Tuscans where, disillusioned with the limitations of the Chianti appellation laws, producers struck out to find new plains, using new varieties and methods, focused on Bordeaux, rather than Tuscan varieties. Le Volte is the third wine from this esteemed producer and a chance to affordably drink prestige. STSWine

The 2015 Le Volte is another outstanding wine from this terrific estate. Made from 67% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Sangiovese, aged 10 months in a mix of concrete tanks and barrels, it offers jammy black cherry and blackberry fruits, hints of licorice, graphite, and dried earth, medium body, ripe, polished tannin, and a great finish. I love its fruit-forward, delicious character and it should drink nicely for 4-5 years. 91 POINTS JEB DUNNUCK
