Wine Review: A Taste of Tuscany


Wine Review: Ornellaia Le Volte 2007 – about $23 ($28 Cdn)

A rich purple hue, the Ornellaia Le Volte 2007 is an austere Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with perfumed aromas of matchstick, horse saddle, rose petal, raspberry and blackberry. Le Volte has an interesting mix of dark and bright flavors of juicy raspberries, cherry, leather and blackberry, and an underlying acidity that leads to a prolonged and pleasing finish.

Quaffability Rating: 88
