    Winemaker Notes

    Blend: 50% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Elegant and enjoyable, the 2005 vintage is characterized by ample fruity, slightly spicy notes. Produced following closely the Tenuta dell'Ornellaia's philosophy, Le Volte is the result of the research and selection of the best Mediterranean terroirs in Tuscany. It matures for about 10 months in 2-4 year old barriques which have been previously used for the aging of Masseto and Ornellaia.

    The Mediterranean expression of Sangiovese gives the wine opulence and warmth while structure and complexity are provided by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The result is a harmonious, balanced, well-structured wine with an enjoyable finish.

    Le Volte, Italy
    Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is situated on the Via Bolgherese in the triangle between the sea, the medieval hamlet of Bolgheri and the town of Castagneto Carducci and, to get there, one travels up part of the historic "cypress avenue" celebrated by the poet Giosuè Carducci. The property comprises 97 hectares planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

    Since the Tenuta dell'Ornellaia's foundation in 1981, this beautiful and unspoiled area has become synonymous with winemaking of the first order and has seen the birth of great labels such as: Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia, Masseto and Le Volte.

    Tenuta dell'Ornellaia's story began when its founder, Marchese Lodovico Antinori, selected the plots of land in Bolgheri, a still untamed area of the Tuscan Maremma, for planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. He considered these the vines most suited to benefiting from the area's extraordinary and special micro-climate.

    In March 1999, the Californian wine producer Robert Mondavi purchased minority shares in the Estate and became owner in 2002, passing 50% of the shares to the Tuscan wine producing family Marchesi de' Frescobaldi. In April 2005, Marchesi de' Frescobaldi took over total ownership.

    Red Wine

    Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

    A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
