91 points, “The 2019 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is terrific. Bold, juicy and wonderfully expressive, the 2019 will drink well right out of the gate. Juicy black cherry, lavender, spice, menthol and chocolate are all kicked up a few notches. In 2019 Le Volte is especially dark and sumptuous, both of which add to its considerable immediacy and overall appeal.” – Antonio Galloni’s Vinous

As the Italian wine expert Antonio Galloni says, “This is an especially fine vintage for the Ornellaia’s entry-level bottling.” Lively, silky and brimming with soft red fruit and summer blackberries from the Merlot, crème de cassis and peppery herbs from the Cabernet Sauvignon, roasted red pepper, cherry, leather and crumbled brick from the Sangiovese, and festive spices and opulence from the oak barrels. A joyous and very affordable glimpse into the legendary estate that creates Ornellaia.

Ornellaia is one of Tuscany’s most iconic wines and, in the words of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, it’s “one of Italy’s blue-chip properties”.  Founded in 1981 by Lodovico Antinori, brother of Piero who created Tignanello, control passed to Robert Mondavi and then on to Frescobaldi, but despite this tumultuous history, its popularity has never wavered. Located in Bolgheri in Maremma, Ornellaia is a Bordeaux-inspired blend and one of the ultimate Super Tuscans. What makes it so exciting is that the blend can vary quite theatrically, making it a many-faceted wine to collect.
