The nose showed red currant, fall leaves, green pepper and a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine was like velvet, as currant and spicy dark woods glimpsed out from a shroud of tannin. It was gorgeously balanced with vibrant acidity and will likely age into something reminiscent of old school Bordeaux. The 2007 Ornellaia may not be for the fan of large-scale cabernet but I have a feeling there is a huge market of traditionalists that will love this wine

A purplish black core with a medium to full body. On the nose, there are loads of dark berries with a wonderful cream like aspect from the oak treatment. Its bouquet is surprising soft and delicate for a wine of its stature. In the mouth, it is fresh, clean and juicy. It delivers loads of blackberry, sweet herbs and currant up front. It glides softly and without effort to dark tannins that caress the palate. The finish lingers beautifully and in general, this wine has great balance. 90 points

Alright I am a complete wine noob. I just turned 21 in december so I haven't tried much, but this wine is delicious! So smooth and a little fruity. I don't know any of the snooty wine lingo, but I really enjoyed this. cheers

Had the Le Volte 2007 for dinner last week . Was very good but still a bit young. Few days ago was blind tasting 21 Italian IGT wines and I could identify the wine I had 4 days ago. Was suspicious and later I found out it was Le Volte. I find the wine well balanced with a refined soft tannin and a firmly held structure in mouth. The finish is smooth with aromas of ripe berries.

Full ruby-red. Youthful, perfumes nose hints at cherry, flowers, licorice and lead pencil. Dense, brooding and powerful, with superb depth and clarity of cherry, cassis, mineral and floral flavors. An aristocratic, backward, gripping Ornellaia that finishes with explosive length and building tannins. If the '98 is feminine, this is distinctly masculine. Still an infant.

The 1999 Ornellaia demonstrates immediately the superiority of the vintage in dark, blackish color, powerful and expansive nose of cassis, graphite, tar, and Mediterranean herbs, and its rich, concentrated, and deep flavors, sizeable but very supple as well. Drink 2005-2022.

Incredible class here, with ultrafine tannins and layers of currants, berries and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied, yet all in harmony and beauty. Beautifully sculptured. Excellent length. Not quite the 1998, but clearly classic. Best after 2005.

The estate's 2007 Masseto is fabulous. Loads of black cherry, blackberry and cassis are intermingled with minerals, violets and French oak. This is an especially sensual Masseto that impresses for its clarity, intensity and length. The wine's pedigre... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Merlot wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell' Masseto 3000ml

Dark ruby-purple in color, with complex aromas of dark chocolate, cola, vanilla, cedar and currant. Full-bodied yet ultrarefined, with dense, seamless, caressing tannins. Everything is in the right proportion. Superb. Cabernet Sauvginon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best after 2009.
