Community Tasting Notes 9

    November 21, 2021 - The 2019 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia should've been the pièce de résistance of the 2010s and I had great expectations for this vintage.
    The berry fruits and delightful silkiness of 2018 is all but gone and instead I find an somewhat unbalanced menthol and oaky note with a uncharacteristic short finish. At the same time, I can find some pleasure in the notes of lavender, peppery spices and chewy tannins.
    A wine to go with food, for sure, but prepare for a somewhat different experience if you're used to walk the paths of Le Volte.

    November 7, 2021 - I have been drinking Le Volte for many years. Recent vintages have not been as impressive as past vintages. The 2019 is not anything spectacular. The color was very nice but the nose was weak. I Drank my bottle with Zucchini Parmigiano and Sicilian Caponata. This vintage is a bit weak, and not at all like older vintages.

    October 27, 2021 - Fairly dry and short on the finish, and not the best vintage of this wine we’ve tasted. We bought one bottle to try and decided against buying any more.

    September 7, 2021 - Always disappointing, always super commercial. This was decent 10 years ago, but nowadays it's just so dull. Deep ruby in the glass. Aromas of some generic black/red fruit and oak spices. Medium body, medium acid, medium alcohol. Back in the day Chianti was your go-to pizza wine, now it's Le Volte.

    September 6, 2021 - Takes time to open up, and probably still a bit too young to really shine. Earthy notes, dried violets and an almost tarry licorice scent is supported by a slightly elevated acid and fine tannins. It’s a good example of Italian flavors, but it lacks the complexity to make me excited to get more of this.
