Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, Le Volte 2014
From the Ornellaia stable comes this beautiful red of impeccable breeding. An annual production of around half a million bottles doesn’t detract from the quality on offer; it demonstrates a good depth of dark fruit with accompanying dried herbs and spice. The mouthfeel is dense and quite smooth despite the tannins, with a delightful minty finish. Fine acidity ties everything together. Superb value considering it is well under the £20 mark.
