The 2010 harvest was late, but it was characterised in particular by clean, crisp aromatics. Le Volte dell'Ornellaia 2010 appears a rich, intense ruby, and offers fragrant red berryfruit, with subtle spice and flowers. It has a rich mouthfeel, with glossy tannins that are smooth and lively at the same time. It progresses through crisp fruit and spice in the mouth, to a rich, savoury finish of near-endless length.
Cherry, plum and herbal flavors stack up against beefy tannins in this dense red, which is compact, with ample sweet fruit to play off the tannins on the finish. Still, it's a little dry in the end. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2014 through 2020.
The 2010 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia is big, juicy and expressive in this vintage. There is firmness of tannin that is unusual for this wine but that works beautifully here in preserving freshness and structure. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint and licorice are some of the many notes that emerge from this beautifully balanced Le Volte. In 2010 the blend is 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. As always, Le Volte is made from a blend of estate-grown grapes and purchased wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
