2017 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Le Volte (750ml)

Merlot from Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy

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.

An opulent Le Volte with ripe redcurrants, caramelized orange peel and lilacs on the nose. Medium body, fine but round tannins and a fruit-driven finish. Drink now.
