Description & Technical Information
Ornellaia was founded in 1981 by Lodovico Antinori and is now one of Italy’s most respected wineries. Being one of the early settlers in the region, Ornellaia are one of the few producers to actually own vineyards in the foothills. Bolgheri is a unique place – it’s close proximity to the ocean means less cloud and a higher level of reflected light from the sea, magnifying the solar intensity. The coastal flatlands also experience much higher winds, which creates a fluctuation between hot days and cool nights, locking in the grapes’ acidity, while giving the fruit great concentration and ripeness.

Being the third wine of Ornellaia, it reflects the philosophy and savoir-faire of the domaine and combine the softness of Merlot, the structure and depth of Cabernet Sauvignon and the vivacity of Sangiovese.

Vinification & Ageing: The different varietals were fermented separately in small steel tanks to maintain their varietal characteristics. The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, again in steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 10 months, partly in barrique used previously for Ornellaia and partly in concrete tanks, to obtain the perfect balance between tannic structure and an expression of fresh fruit.

Weather: The year 2019 was characterised by a highly variable climate, which alternated periods of cold and rain with long bouts of drought and heat. Budding took place in the first week of April. Cold and rainy conditions throughout spring slowed down development of the vegetation. All summer long the weather remained hot and sunny, The harvest began slowly on September 5th, finishing with the late ripening varieties on October 4th.

Expert Reviews
Antonio Galloni
“The 2019 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is terrific. Bold, juicy and wonderfully expressive, the 2019 will drink well right out of the gate. Juicy black cherry, lavender, spice, menthol and chocolate are all kicked up a few notches. In 2019 Le Volte is especially dark and sumptuous, both of which add to its considerable immediacy and overall appeal. This is an especially fine vintage for the Ornellaia's entry-level bottling.”
Jeb Dunnuck
“Rosemary, sage and underbrush on the attack. Tight, extremely spicy, this feels full of freshly cut herbs with touches of earth. A cold start to the season meant late budding then a hot season later, giving an opulence in the final glass. This is bottled a year earlier than the others two reds, and is a little more open. Blending takes place after ageing, with ageing in a mix of oak barrels and cement.”
