The 2019 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is terrific. Bold, juicy and wonderfully expressive, the 2019 will drink well right out of the gate. Juicy black cherry, lavender, spice, menthol and chocolate are all kicked up a few notches. In 2019 Le Volte is especially dark and sumptuous, both of which add to its considerable immediacy and overall appeal. This is an especially fine vintage for the Ornellaia’s entry-level bottling.

First released through the Place in March 2021, this has softened since I last tasted it, and majors on richly textured raspberry puree, still with distinct fresh rosemary with a handful of dried herb spice and white pepper. There is a deft confidence to the delivery and this is very easy to love. No need to wait, although it will keep delivering for another to decade. Blending takes place a few months before bottling, with ageing in a mix of oak barrels and cement vats.
