90 Point Wine Spectator: Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is rich and full-bodied, with all of its components in perfect balance. Intense in both colour and bouquet, it releases profound notes of dark berryfruit, sweet violets, and spice. The palate offers a broad vein of finely-woven, glossy tannins, creating a velvety mouthfeel. Impressions of fruit and spice lace the progression, which proceeds leisurely to an energy-laden finish enlivened by a tangy acidity.
192 hectares: the total area covered by the estate, including the vineyards and winery at Ornellaia and the adjacent Bellaria property northwest of Bolgheri. A rich and varied area that, thanks to a combination of alluvial, volcanic and marine terrains, produces superb Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
On the Tuscan coast, in a land that beheld the splendor of the Etruscans and breathed Carducci's Art… is home to Bolgheri, and the nearby Tenuta dell'Ornellaia. From the low hilly landscape, topped with cypresses and the heavy scented perfumes of the Mediterranean, to the resting spots of migratory birds and the dense woodlands that slope gently to the sea. A natural paradise that satiates each and every sense.
