New Release | Le Volte dell'Ornellaia 2016
Today we see the new release of a wine that holds impeccable breeding and value: Le Volte dell'Ornellaia. Coming from the stable of Italy's most celebrated Bordeaux-inspired wine, the iconic Ornellaia, we are pleased to offer the hotly anticipated 2016 vintage which is exceptional value at under £18 per bottle on the table.
There is something magical about the best wines from the world’s top regions. These wines speak of their place of origin with great eloquence, which is why they are considered benchmarks. Le Volte combines the Mediterranean expression of opulence and generosity with structure, complexity and exquisite pedigree, reflecting the philosophy and expertise of Ornellaia.
The 2016 vintage in Bolgheri has the potential to be even greater than 2015, making Le Volte 2016 really quite special. This gorgeous little wine delivers an approachable, early-drinking 'super-Tuscan' blend, beautifully marrying the softness of Bordeaux’s Merlot and the structure and depth of the Cabernet Sauvignon with the beauty and vivacity of the Tuscany’s Sangiovese. The result, as winemaker Axel Heinz sums up, is a combination of “ripe yet vibrant fruit with a silky and generous texture underlined by a fresh and lively acidity.”
After tasting this exceptional wine, we think it is five star and absolutely knockout for the price. The 2016 vintage is a tremendous opportunity to buy the third wine of Ornellaia from an exquisite vintage without spending a fortune.

‘Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfrectly ripe yet vibrant fruit with a silky and generous texture underlined by a fresh and lively acidity.’ Axel Heinz, Winemaker
A super affordable super Tuscan from a dream vintage. The 2016 Le Volte is made up of around 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 67% Merlot, 13% Sangiovese, although they don’t say exactly with the new release! Each varietal was fermented separately in small steel tanks before blending, keeping their individual characteristics as pure and as fresh as possible. A gorgeously inviting nose of fresh dark red fruits leap from the glass, lots of kirsch and raspberry. On the palate very elegant, but fleshy vibrant dark black and red fruits; sweet red plums, dark cherries, raspberries, blueberries and a hints of spice and graphite. Silky smooth juicy mouthfeel and texture, with soft ripe tannins and crisp bright acidity, leading to a beautifully vibrant and elegant finish. Delicious and highly recommend.
