Natalie's Score: 93/100

The double magnum size of this wine that's equivalent to four regular 750 ml bottles. Full-bodied with black fruit and mouth-watering acidity. This is the second label of the Super Tuscan producer Ornellaia. This red wine is a blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The wine was matured for 1 year in French oak. Finishes with leafy blackberry fruit, spiced red fruit and cassis, with fresh earth. Pair it with a medallion of tenderloin in a reduced red wine sauce. Decant for 1-2 hours. Great cellar wine.

Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: prime rib, New York strip loin barbecued ribs in rich gravy.

Reviews and Ratings

Le Volte dell’Ornellaia (2014) is a blend of Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each grape variety was fermented in steel tank to maintain its freshness and varietal integrity. The wine was then aged for 10 months, partly in oak barrel and cement tank. The double magnum size of this wine is equivalent to four regular 750 ml bottles. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
