Ornellaia is a renowned Italian wine producer known as a producer of Super Tuscan wine. In 1981, Lodovico Antinori  founded the Ornellaia estate on property neighboring the Sassicaia estate. Robert Mondavi aquired Ornellaia in 2001 and sold it to the Frescobaldi family, the presentr owners in 2005. The proximity of Ornellaia’s vineyards to the Tuscan coast is vital for maintaining acidity in the grapes.

“LE VOLTE” by ORNELLAIA is deliberately made in an approachable, accessible style to provide instant gratification but may also be cellared for 3 to 5 years. Value hunters long recognized this irresistible Italian red as a well-priced winner. This is an especially fine vintage for the Ornellaia's entry-level bottling.

Juicy red and blue fruits are framed with pencil lead, dark chocolate, lavender, and fresh-cut herbs with touches of earth in this opulent, sophisticated Le Volte bottling. While energized by a vibrant streak of acidity, there are no sharp edges in this ’19 Le Volte; it holds the palate in a silky grip complemented by copious dry extract and polished tannins. Pair with pasta with wild boar ragu or braised rabbit.
