Smaller and yet more satisfying - for the moment at least - Le Serre Nuove is the true second wine of Ornellaia. Its...

Serre Nuove is considered the baby Ornellaia but it too needs cellaring. The attack is round and full with a juicy,...

The 2011 Le Serre Nuove Dell'Ornellaia Bolgheri is composed of 57% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 14% Petit Verdot that was aged for 16 months in new French Oak. This wine has intense aromas of black cherry, prune, wood and cedar. It is a medium to full bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; balanced with good acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30-60 min) and a long, wood dominated, smooth finish. This one is a sipper; drink 2014 – 2020+. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91-92 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted at 'Taste Italy 2013' http://grapeselections.com/taste-italy-2013/ in Nov/13.
