Ornellaia Le Volte Toscana IGT 2007

This wine is a blend of 51% sangiovese, 34% merlot and 15% cabernet sauvignon.  It has a very powerful, overt aroma of ripe liqueur cherries and sweet currants, to the point where it is almost candied.  The palate has good length.  Clearly this is a good wine and tastes good; I just found the aroma a little off-putting.  It may stabilise in time.  84 to 85 points.

Abv: 13.5%
Price: mid $30s
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Probably not
