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.

Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Le Volte IGT 2007: Dieser Wein steht im völligen Einklang mit der Philosophie des Weingutes Tenuta dell Ornellaia. Er zeigt im Glas ein dunkles, wunderschön anzusehendes Brombeerrot. In der Nase gibt er sich ausdrucksvoll mit reichhaltigen, fruchtigen und leicht würzigen Noten. Rund und vollmundig am Gaumen, vereint dieser durch und durch toskanische Wein die mediterrane Fülle des Sangiovese mit der eleganten Struktur des Cabernet Sauvignon und den weicheren Tönen des Merlot. Dieser Wein harmoniert gut mit deftigen Gerichte von Schwein und Rind, Braten samt dunkler Soßen, gegrilltem Fleisch, Lamm und Wild oder würzigen Käsesorten.Da Ludovici Antinoris Rotweine als die besten der Welt gelten, reagiert der Markt absolut heiß darauf. Sogar besonnene Kunden, die sich sonst nur zögerlich zum Kauf entschließen, sehen sich angesichts des knappen Angebots genötigt, hemmungslos zuzuschlagen. Anderenfalls zappeln sie nämlich weitere zwölf Monate in der Warteschleife, bevor sich ihnen eine neue Chance bietet. Das ist die Realität, kein Werbegag. Ornellaia liefert nicht nach. Die Anzahl der Flaschen ist streng limitiert. Während die Traube noch am Rebstock reift, ist der Wein bereits verkauft. Das ist vergleichbar mit den Karten der Wagner-Festspiele für Bayreuth oder für Gemälde des Leipziger Malers Neo Rauch.

92 points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine CellarDark ruby. Subdued but pure aromas of blackcurrant, coffee and vanilla on the atypically restrained nose. Enters broad and plump, then shows a distinctly restrained sweetness to its blackberry, blueberry and coffee flavors. Finishes ultra-smooth and refined. Though I like this rather politely styled, adult version of Masseto, those who yearn for the explosive aromas and flavors more typically associated with this normally flamboyant wine may be disappointed. I would caution readers to beware of those who score Masseto higher than Ornellaia this year; in '07, as in '02 and '03, Ornellaia is the better wine. -September/October 2010 -Ian D'Agata,

A rich Tuscan red that will benefit from cellar aging. Full of cassis fruits, cedar and smoky spices.

A wine that does everything right and puts it in beautiful balance. Full-bodied, yet reserved, silky and elegant, with wonderful fruit and friendly tannins. Best after 2012.-J.S. Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Ornellaia, Tenuta dell' Ornellaia 750ml

This feels closed and reticent at first, a muddle of aromas and flavor. It gains definition with air, leading with black cherry and ripe fig flavors backed by savory, slightly herbaceous tannins. Cellar it for eight years and then decant for a grilled rib eye.

Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC Superiore is the Estate's flagship wine which embodies the quality philosophy of the Estate. Resulting from a very rigorous selection, the wine is a remarkable cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. A perfectly balanced expression of the relationship between land, vine and man.
