Le Volte dell'Ornellaia Toscana IGT Rosso 2020

Le Volte dell'Ornellaia combines the Mediterranean expression of generosity with structure and complexity that reflects Ornellaia's philosophy. Le Volte dell'Ornellaia is a fine drop for spontaneous, casual wine enjoyment.


After a mild and rainy winter, March saw a temporary drop in temperature. In the last week of the month, right at the start of budding, temperatures were below 0 °C on a few nights. Fortunately, the fresh shoots were protected from frost damage by their fine bud tissue. The remainder of spring was characterized by generally warm weather with normal levels of rainfall, resulting in a smooth vegetative development through to flowering, which occurred on average between May 20th and 25th. Towards the middle of June there was heavy rain, followed by a very long dry period, with no rain until the end of August and very high temperatures prevailed. The véraison was smooth and rapid between July 20th and 25th, initiating the ripening of the grapes in sunny, hot weather conditions. At the end of August, welcome rains brought a significant drop in temperature, with overnight lows dipping to 13°C, providing ideal conditions for the Merlot to complete its maturation. In order to preserve their freshness and fruitiness as much as possible, the Merlot grapes were harvested early and quickly in just two weeks – just in time to avoid a sudden week-long heatwave that saw the thermometer register up to 37°C, prompting us to do so to start harvesting the later grape varieties as early as September 17th. Towards the end of the month, rains eventually normalized weather conditions, allowing us to finish the harvest on October 3rd.


The different grape varieties were fermented separately in small steel tanks to preserve their varietal characteristics. After the alcoholic fermentation, the malolactic fermentation took place, again in steel tanks. Finally, the wine was aged for 10 months, partly in barriques used for Ornellaia and partly in cement tanks, to achieve a perfect balance between the tannic structure and the expression of the fruit.
