Ornellaia Le Volte dell' Ornellaia Toscana IGT 2018

Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is the expression of a carefully crafted blend. The cuvée brings together the best terroirs of Tuscany and combines the Mediterranean expression of opulence and generosity with structure and complexity. The softness of Merlot, the firm structure and depth of Cabernet Sauvignon supported by the vivacious personality of Sangiovese, create a unique blend which reflects the integrity and style which inspire the philosophy of the Ornellaia Estate. The different varietals were fermented separately in small steel tanks to maintain their varietal characteristics intact. The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, again in steel tanks. The wine was then aged for 10 months in barriques ranging from 2-4 years old which had already been used for the ageing of Ornellaia. The time spent in small oak barrels improved the wine’s structure, and softened its tannins. 50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
