Description
Similar to 2011 (which earned a rating of 90 points for this wine from erobertparker.com), 2012 was a dry vintage with plentiful, but not excessive, heat. Comprised of 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2012 has not yet been reviewed, but one can expect it to be true to its pedigree and typically generous, complex and structured. A fitting example of Ornellaia's philosophy of excellence.
Tasting Notes
[New to the Vintages Essentials collection.]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. Drink date: 2019-2024. Score - 92. (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, April 18, 2019)
