If I Could Buy Only One – April 13th Vintages Release

We asked our writers, “If you could buy only one wine from the April 13th release, which one would it be and why?”

Le Serre Nuove Dell’ornellaia 2021, Tuscany, Italy
$78.95, Mark Anthony Group
Megha Jandhyala – My “only one” this week is the 2021 Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia. The second wine of acclaimed Tuscan producer, Ornellaia, and the product of an excellent vintage, this Bordeaux-inspired blend is self-possessed, enchanting, and concentrated. It is steeped in a multiplicity of flavours, including plush red plums, blackberries, dark cherries, tobacco, dried herbs, violets, nutmeg, vanilla, and cloves. Already complex, refined, and elegant, it will only improve with a few years in a cellar. To me, this exceptional, age-worthy wine is well worth its premium price – I would buy a couple of bottles of it for special celebrations over the next decade.
