Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia 2018
95-96 points, “Really beautiful second wine from Ornellaia with blackcurrant and blueberry aromas and flavours. Full body and round, soft tannins that caress the palate.” – James Suckling
Le Serre Nuove – a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot – was introduced into Tenuta dell’Ornellaia’s range in 1997. It comes from the younger vines in the same vineyards used for the flagship Ornellaia and winemaker Axel Heinz says, “we put the same care and attention to detail into creating Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia.” Described by Forbes as an “object of desire” and inundated with high scores in every vintage, this is going to fly off our shelves. Rich, intense and seamlessly smooth. Enjoy its blackberry, black cherry, tobacco, roasted walnut, earthy paprika and herbal notes as you wait for the Grand Vin to come of age.
Ornellaia is one of Tuscany’s most iconic wines and, in the words of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, it’s “one of Italy’s blue-chip properties”. Founded in 1981 by Lodovico Antinori, brother of Piero who created Tignanello, control passed to Robert Mondavi and then on to Frescobaldi, but despite this tumultuous history, its popularity has never wavered. Located in Bolgheri in Maremma, Ornellaia is a Bordeaux-inspired blend and one of the ultimate Super Tuscans. What makes it so exciting is that the blend can vary quite theatrically, making it a many-faceted wine to collect.
