La Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia

La Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia. A true ‘Second vin’ of Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia was first introduced with vintage 1997, resulting from the decision to carry out an even more rigid selection during the blending phase of the base wines which give life to Ornellaia. Produced primarily from the younger vineyards , the wine combines the pedigree of the flagship wine with freshness, accessibility and softness together with a structure, balance and intensity typical of the great terroir of the Estate.

Winery is located at Bolgheri On the Tuscan coast, in a land that beheld the splendor of the Etruscans and breathed Carducci’s Art

Winemakers note : From a growing season that was among the coolest and most late-ripening in recent years, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia 2010 exhibits truly stunning aromatics. A vigorous Cabernet Sauvignon and a fruit-rich, lusciously-rounded Merlot compose a balanced cuvée marked by fragrant tobacco leaf, intense fruit notes and spices. The palate is firmly-structured and complex, with silky tannins and remarkable aromatic richness, and the progression concludes in a long, firm finish. Tasted May 2012 (taken from Ornellaia website)
