Le Serre Nuove is a true ‘second vin’ sourced from the estate’s younger vineyards and made with the same passion as Ornellaia. The wines were blend after spending 12 months in oak barrel and were aged for another 3 months after that. The result is a generous and deep Super Tuscan with an engaging and vibrant personality.
“Wonderful depth of fruit to this wine with blackcurrants, spices, mints and flowers. Full body, firm and silk tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and polished red. This needs another three of four years to come together but shows style and beauty. Superb second wine from Ornellaia.” – 94 pts James Suckling August 2015
“… The wine presents an intensely drinkable style with soft fruit nuances of cherry, spice, grilled herb and leather. The integration of those aromas is absolutely seamless. In the mouth, Le Serra Nuove is soft, lush and beautifully persistent.” – 92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate October 2015.
Italian still red wine from Bolgheri in Tuscany Italy made with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot.
First vines at Tenuta dell’ Ornellaia were planted in 1982 on the foothills around Bolgheri. Facing the Mediterranean coast, this estate enjoys maritime breeze that cool down the vineyards, and a myriad of individual parcels well suited for the growth of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. They believe wines should truly express their terroir and their vintage and are obsessed with optimum harvest time in order to achieve full ripeness for both sugar and tannins. As a result, their wines have become a favourite amongst wine lovers. View our selection.
The 97 hectares of vines are split in two neighbouring locations on the original property and at “Bellaria”, a newly developed area northeast of Bolgheri. The estate is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Grapes are very carefully selected and each plot is fermented separately. The first wine is usually aged for 12 months in French oak barrel.
