Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) Le Serre Nuove is the ‘second vin’ of Ornellaia . Its composition is decided at time of final blending of Ornellaia by choosing barriques which combine youthfulness and suppleness with structure, balance and intensity of the estate’s terroir. Deep crimson red, with attractive red berry fruit aromas. Balanced, round generous palate, with a smooth lengthy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the blend with its fine tannin structure, complemented by suppleness of Merlot.

    (2006 Vintage) "The 2006 Le Serre Nuove, the estate's second wine from Ornellaia, will challenge many of the top bottlings in this vintage for years to come. The 2006 is a rich, sumptuous wine bursting with ripe dark fruit, smoke, tobacco, grilled herbs, new leather, minerals and tar. The wine possesses superb density and explosive, utterly irresistible personality. At roughly one-third the price of its big sibling Ornellaia, the 2006 Le Serre Nuove is a must-purchase wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022."
