“The Ornellaia 2018 Le Volte dell’Ornellaia is mostly Merlot, but the rest of the blend is filled out with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Indeed, dedicating a portion of fruit to an entry-level wine such as this (with an annual production of some 750,000 bottles) ensures lower yields and high quality for other wines in the estate portfolio. The vines are planted at 60 to 80 meters above sea level, and the soils see a mix of deep clay, red sand and rocks. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations occur in steel vats, and the wine is aged partly in barrique and a part cement for 10 months. This vintage is very primary and simple with bright high tones of raspberry and wild blueberry followed by some almond and toasted nut. The mouthfeel is compact and direct. Le Volte was released in March 2020.” The Wine Advocate, May 2020

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
