Le Volte Dell' Ornellaia 2016 (Italy: Tuscany)

Name Le Volte Dell' Ornellaia 2016
Varietal Toscana (IGT)
Region Italy: Tuscany
Notes "You get excellent value with the 2016. This vintage radiates freshness and sheer energy, thanks to the excellent material available in this classic vintage. The base of the wine is Merlot, but the winemaking team at Ornellaia sources fruit far and wide along the Tuscan coast to locate the Sangiovese and the Cabernet Sauvignon that completes the blend. The wine opens to a rich, dark appearance and offers succulent fruit tones of blackberry, blackcurrant and lingering spice. You also get that characteristic freshness that comes from the Sangiovese." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Black currant, blackberry and mint aromas and flavors mark this firm, linear red. Fruity yet savory, ending with a dense, wide swath of dusty tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2030. 9,000 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
