Le Volte 2019 IGT Toscana...

Le Volte 2019 IGT Toscana...

<br />Le Volte dell'Ornellaia<br />TUSCANY IGT RED<br /><br />Le Volte dell'Ornellaia combines a Mediterranean expression of generosity with structure and complexity, reflecting Ornellaia's philosophy. Le Volte dell'Ornellaia is a fine<br />wine for those who enjoy wine spontaneously, without the need for ceremony.<br /><br />The 2019 vintage was characterised like few others by a very variable climate, alternating periods of cold and rain with long phases of drought and heat. After a normal<br />winter, budding took place in the first week of April. Cold and rainy conditions throughout April and May significantly slowed down vegetative development, leading to<br />flowering 10 days later than average. June suddenly brought very warm and rain-free weather, with peak temperatures of 37°C reached at the end of the month. Throughout<br />the summer the weather remained warm and sunny with temperatures 2°C above average and 45 consecutive days without rain. In the last week of July, the long dry spell<br />was interrupted by two days of rain, bringing temperatures back to seasonal norms, with ideal conditions for ripening. The harvest began slowly on 5 September. As usual,<br />the last week of September saw a drop in temperatures, which made it possible to preserve great aromatic finesse and freshness. After the rains following 21 September,<br />sunny conditions returned, enabling us to conclude the harvest of the later varieties on 4 October.<br /><br />Vinification was carried out separately in small steel tanks, respecting the different varietal characteristics during the fermentation phases. Alcoholic fermentation was<br />followed by malolactic fermentation, again in steel tanks. The ageing phase lasted 10 months, partly in barriques, previously used for Ornellaia, and partly in cement tanks,<br />in order to obtain a perfect balance between tannic structure and fruity expression.<br />Axel Heinz - Estate Manager<br /><br /><br />'2019 gives us a Le Volte dell'Ornellaia of great balance and expressiveness. Intense ruby red in colour, on the nose, lively notes of red fruits and rose petals stand out; on<br />the palate it is full and enveloping, characterised by a dense tannic texture and vibrant acidity that make it a wine of great pleasure and drinkability.'<br />Olga Fusari - Winemaker - December 2020<br />
