Ornellaia’s entry level red, Le Volte, has always appealed thanks to its serious and sophisticated character. The 2015 vintage continues that legacy nicely, showcasing the polished complexity and verve that makes the best Tuscan red wines so appealing. The new release is a blend of 67 percent Merlot, 20 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 13 percent Sangiovese (the smallest percentage in more than a decade), with each grape variety vinified separately in stainless steel before being blended and aged in barrel and concrete tanks for 10 months. The resulting wine reveals layers of ripe fruit, sweet spices and smoky notes with an appealing silky texture, refreshing acidity and satisfying finish. Drink now to 2026. Highly Recommended.
