Le Volte dell' Ornellaia, Toscana 2020

IR16620

Almost entirely Merlot. Very attractive and immediate on the nose: candied cherry, cassis, and blackberry fruits, no little spice and garrigue, cedar and tobacco. The palate offers a silky softness, lively acidity, a little chalky tannic grip, with a persistent perfumed quality, woody notes, exotic Sangiovese spicing, and orange-like tang. Drink 2022-2032+

2020 began with a mild and wet winter which turned into a cool, and at times very cold Spring, frost hit the vineyards, but the buds had not yet burst and so protected the shoots. Flowering came as normal, June saw plenty of rain before a long dry and hot spell until the end of August. Ripening moved along very quickly, and late August rains reduced temperatures, with relatively cool nights, which greatly benefited the Merlot, which was picked early ahead of a hot late-September. All varietals were fermented separately in stainless steel, before blending and maturing, partly in ex-Ornellaia barriques, for ten months before bottling.
