Balanced wine of great charm, Le Volte is a blend that assembles the best terroirs in Tuscany, Mediterranean combining the expression of Sangiovese, which gives opulence and generosity, with the structure and complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and the softness of Merlot. Born in 1991, The Times reflects the integrity and style that inspires the whole range of Tenuta Ornellaia.
Deep ruby red in colour
The nose is intensely fruity with hints of berries and sweet spices.
Vintage concentration and structure, The Times gives a particularly full and dense. The mouth is wide and thick with tannins present but well integrated and smooth. The finish continues with fruity notes and a beautiful ending to a lively sensation of freshness

Climate The season was characterized by cool, rainy winter, with a normal bud. The spring rainy at blossom time, slowed down the set, of course, lowering the burden of production plants. The summer was marked by intense heat almost no precipitation until the first week of September. This has allowed a smooth veraison and excellent ripeness, with cool nights perfect for the development of perfumes and color. The north half of September has led to a lowering of temperatures. The cool season, windy but sunny was particularly favorable for late varieties (such as Sangiovese) who were able to complete their maturation accumulating a lot of potential aromatic and polyphenolic
Production technique The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, also in stainless steel tanks.
Vinification The wine was made separately in small stainless steel tanks respecting the varietal characteristics during different stages of fermentation
Aging Phase lasted 10 months aging in barrels of 2-4 years, the third step because previously used for wine Masseto and Ornellaia. The time spent in small barrels allows the wine to improve its structure by softening the lively tannins.
Alcohol 13.50% by volume
