Delivery Details

Le Volte dell’Ornellaia combines the Mediterranean expression of opulence and generosity with structure and complexity. The approachable style of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, a blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, reflects the philosophy and savoir-faire of Ornellaia.

2012 has given us a superb exemplar of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia. The warm but not excessively-hot season favoured ideal ripeness levels in the fruit. The wine appears its classic rich hue, and boasts a bouquet that is generously fruity and subtly spiced. The elegant, silk-smooth tannins are immediately impressive, beautifully complemented by a vibrant, refreshing acidity.

2012 was a dry growing year, like 2011, with the scarcity of water already evident during a cold, dry winter. At budbreak, which occurred normally, a water deficit of some 100mm, compared to the multi-year average, was already evident. A mild, sunny spring brought good vine growth, with a rapid, consistent flowering. July and August were hot and almost rain-free, leading to fears of arrested ripening due to lack of water. However, veraison was completely normal and satisfactory. A few spells of rain in late August and early September increased the momentum of the ripening, and the fruit achieved fine overall ripeness, with optimal levels of aromatics and polyphenols. Harvest took place between 2 September and 4 October, just before the arrival of heavy autumn rains.
