A super Tuscan blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot from the world famous Ornellaia estate in Bolgheri, Italy. Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia shows richness, power and elegance from a year of intermittent rain and a long, dry summer.
“With its usual intense colour, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia 2019 has a nose full of fresh notes of ripe red fruits, accompanied by a lively balsamic vein with aromatic hints of cypress and eucalyptus berries. The wine is soft and silky in the mouth, filling it with an elegant tannic texture and a sapid and persistent finish.” Olga Fusari – Ornellaia Winemaker
“A recognisable Bordeaux blend with its structure, tannins and velvet texture. Softly brushed vanilla bean an cocoa shavings alongside the raspberry fruits. This is excellent quality, approachable with a good few hours in a carafe now, or give it another few years to further soften the tannins. Le Serre Nuove comes from younger vines or those on lighter, sandier soils, translating into a fruit-focused, unfussy wine that was first released in this vintage through the Place in March 2021, making this my second tasting. Drink 2022 – 2030” – 93 Pts, Jane Anson, Decanter.com (Tasted Sept 2021)
