Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, March 2021

    Le Volte is the third wine of the renowned Super Tuscan Estate, Ornellaia. It is an elegant, mid-weight wine that delivers an approachable, early drinking ‘super-Tuscan’ blend at a fraction of the price. It marries the softness of Bordeaux’s Merlot, the structure and depth of Cabernet Sauvignon and the beauty and vivacity of Tuscany’s Sangiovese. The 2019 is simply magical and a firm favourite with the Goedhuis team thanks to its juicy acidity, supple tannins, and bright red fruit. It is aged for 10 months in barrels previously used for Ornellaia and then concrete tanks. Winekaker Axel Heinz says this helps “obtain the perfect balance between tannic structure and an expression of fresh fruit”. Brilliant value.

    The 2018 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is fresh, fruity and an absolute delight to taste. Crushed red berry fruit, spice and floral notes abound, giving the 2018 an effusive character that is impossible to miss. Silky and gracious, the 2018 will drink well upon release. The purity of the flavors here is really quite lovely. Drink 2020-2028

Ornellaia

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is at the centre of the family of Super Tuscans. The established was in 1981 near the village of Bolgheri by Ludovico Antinori to rival his cousin's Sassicaia. This special area of the Tuscan coastline has the perfect maritime climate for growing Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The Masseto is made from 100% Merlot, and its silky smoothness have marked it out as a modern classic.

Region

Bolgheri

The medieval town of Bolgheri was originally made famous by the poet Giosuè Carducci who wrote about the stunning Cypress Avenue, a breathtaking and magical three mile long corridor of trees leading up to the entrance to the village. Swept away to the coastal and most westerly area of Tuscany, Bolgheri has become synonymous with wines known as ‘Super Tuscans'. Composed of classic Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc (intermixed with the occasional Sangiovese), the Super Tuscans began as mere experimentation in the 1960s and 70s. These international French varieties flourished in Bolgheri's warm, yet maritime climate which resulted in unexpected success and reknown. It is here that one finds such famous names as Ornellaia, Tignanello and Sassicaia.
