Monica Larner (Robert Parker) 92/100
Lots of big, dark fruit and a lack of water in the grapes define the unique personality of the 2017 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia. This is a highly extracted and succulent expression that delivers abundant fruit sweetness. The key to this vintage was waiting for proper ripeness, says estate manager and winemaker Axel Heinz. "The grapes continued to get smaller throughout the summer," he says. That lack of water resulted in very concentrated fruit, giving this entry-level wine a rich and modern feel as a result.

Tenuta dell' Ornellaia is one of the world's great wine estates and priced to match, however they have a hidden gem in their portfolio, their baby wine 'Le Volte'. This blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted for early drinking and vinified with the same impeccable approach used for the Grand Vin.
