Reviews and Ratings

Alain Charpentier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is produced by the Ornellaia Estate, home of the famous Super Tuscan. The wine is composed of Merlot (50%), Sangiovese (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). It contains 14% alcohol and is aged for 10 months in oak barrels previously used for aging their flagship Ornellaia wine.
The 2011 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is a full-bodied wine with aromas of black cherries, prunes and a hint of nutmeg. This well-structured wine needs to be decanted for at least 45 minutes in order to soften its tannins. On the palate, red fruit and a crisp acidity precede a long finish. This wine can be cellared for a few years.
Pairing suggestion: steak or roast beef (medium rare).

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
