2017 Le Volte, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, Tuscany

Perfumed with notes of lilac and black cherries, with a touch of tapenade and tar, the nose on the 2017 Le Volte is incredibly enticing. The palate is silky and fine-boned, with a wonderful opulence and generosity to the fruit. Beautiful length, a delicious everyday red, that punches above its price.

2017 Le Volte, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, Tuscany
Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Here's one of the original Super Tuscan producers, the group of wines known for using Bordeaux varieties in Sangiovese country to create magnificent wines. Tenuta dell’Ornellaia was founded by Marchese Lodovico Antinori in 1981. He’s the cousin of Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, founder of Sassicaia, and brother of Piero Antonori who started Solaia at Tenuta Tignanello. So Super Tuscans, and no doubt competitiveness, run in the family.
