Natalie's Score: 90/100
A full-bodied Sangiovese and Merlot mouthful with ripe black currant, blackberry, mint her and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Rich and juicy with concentrated fruit. Tannins are fine and dusty. Enjoy now and for the next five years.
Food pairings: spaghetti and meatballs, veal parmesan, sautéed veal medallions.

|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The little sibling of Super Tuscan Ornellaia, this red blend mostly Merlot with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Young and timid now, hiding the more subtle aromas but revealing incredible concentration and potential. Ripe dark fruit and balanced oak influence with cocoa and coffee. Elegantly balanced with fresh acidity, fine and grippy tannins, and medium body. If this is the entry level offering, how good are the second and first tiers? Probably frighteningly good. Try this with bison steak with a cider and shallot reduction.
|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A hot, dry year has produced very concentrated dried raspberry and black cherry on the nose and palate. Silky, smooth mouthfeel with fine tannins on the finish. Well balanced. Enjoy with rich short ribs or ragu. Tasted July 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
|Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A full flavoured glass of wine that will do exceptionally well with a meal to tame its firm but ripe tannins. Plenty of sweet fruit to back up the palate to end in a long satisfying finish. Would be delicious with beef and chorizo pie @wrightwineblog
|Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
A Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese blend from Tuscany. Sweet fruit and mint aromas with leather and earthiness from the oak aging. Medium-bodied wine will go with savoury dishes like lamb and red meat.
|Le Volte Dell'ornellaia 2017 is a full-bodied red wine blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the hottest vintages ever in the Tuscany wine region. Deep ruby in the glass, fragrant with dark plum, red cherry, dark berry, earthy florals and cedar spice aromas on the nose. Dry, lush with ripe red berry, plum, cake spice and toast oak flavours on the palate. Tannins are fine and there is great acidity for food. Pair with a meaty lasagne with rich tomato sauce. - Community Wine Reviews|
