Produced with the same passion and attention to detail reserved for Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is a real “second vin”. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, which combines immediate pleasantness and taste-olfactory complexity with a proven aging potential.
This is a fantastic interpretation from Bolgheri. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is made with fruit from the same vineyard plots that go into the Bolgheri Superiore, only this is a second selection if you will. Generally speaking, fruit from the younger vines goes here. This wine gives us a very pretty glimpse of what we can expect of the high-end releases from this classic vintage. The fruit is rock solid, delineated, tonic and firm. The pleasure factor awarded here is very high thanks to the wine’s inner softness, silky tannins and soothing extract. The bouquet is seamless and pristine.
