Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove

Winemaker's Notes

This opulent, lavishly fruity Merlot is marked by a tight core of seductive black fruit and intense aromas of spice, herb and toasty oak in a steely tannic structure underscored by a fresh, focused note of acidity.

  • Antonio Galloni
    (From 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."
