Le Volte dell'Ornellaia 2021

One of our drinking wines of the year hits the market today: 2021 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia. It comes with an enthusiastic Goedhuis 'stamp of approval' after last week's team tasting and, if it isn't already, we are confident it will fast become your go-to House Red. This younger sibling of Super Tuscan royalty has become a superstar in its own right and is one of the top value Italian buys of the 2021 vintage, coming in at less than £24/btl all in.

  • Goedhuis, March 2023

    Always one of the top value Italian buys of the vintage, Le Volte is a Tuscan superstar in its own right and offers a little bit of everything, the softness of Merlot, the structure and depth of Cabernet Sauvignon, and the beauty and exuberance of Tuscany’s Sangiovese. The 2021 offers mouth-watering red cherry, plum and blackberry over layers of lavender, Mediterranean herbs, cedar and fresh tobacco leaf. Bright and energetic on the palate, the tannins are soft and well-integrated, making this an immensely pleasurable wine. Instantly enjoyable, but backed up with a supple, nimble structure and crisp vibrant fruit that will allow it to age comfortably for up to five years.

  • Goedhuis, May 2023

    Crafted with the same attention to detail as its famed compatriot, the 2021 Le Serre Nuove is a tried-and-tested blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a drop of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. From morello cherry and blackberry to cinnamon and cloves, the nose is a delightful combination of dark fruits and exotic spices, while the Mediterranean influence is at the forefront of the palate with its mouth-watering black olive. The 2021 Le Serre Nuove is such a serious wine, backed with impressive structure and a core of pristine fruit all the while retaining the vintage’s signature bright acidity and freshness. There is an elegance and poise to this wine that is indicative of a truly superb vintage. Magnificently done. Drink 2025-2035.

  • Antonio Galloni, August 2023, Score: 94

    The 2021 Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia packs a huge punch. Masses of dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, leather, licorice and cloves saturate the palate. I don't remember a Serre Nuove with this much sheer power and somber intensity, but the balance is there, especially with aeration. It will be interesting to see how the 2021 develops. Today it is quite the powerhouse. Drink 2025-2036.

  • Wine Advocate, May 2023, Score: 93

    The 2021 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is a nicely extracted and rich blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This vintage is very generous, even opulent, with dark fruit that is framed by exotic spice, baking chocolate and softly toasted tones from French oak. The wine ends on a creamy note with vanilla and cinnamon. The oak needs a few more years to integrate. Drink 2024-2033.
