Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2012 Le Volte is 50% Merlot with 30% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a lovely personification of Tuscan ideals that is redolent of red cherry, Mediterranean herb, black pepper and tilled earth. Dusty mineral nuances give the wine sharpness and definition. The tannins are silky and dry. (Oct 2014)
Le Volte is the expression of a carefully crafted blend. The cuvee brings together the best terroirs of Tuscany and combines the Mediterranean expression of opulence and generosity with structure and complexity. The softness of Merlot, the firm structure and depth of Cabernet Sauvignon supported by the vivacious personality of Sangiovese, create a unique blend which reflects the integrity and style which inspire the philosophy of the Tenuta dell’Ornellaia Estate.
