In a nutshell:
A dark and full bodied 'Super Tuscan' from one of the leading estates.
Ornellaia were one of the pioneers of the, now legendary 'Super Tuscans', and Le Serre Nuove is their silky second wine. It's from the same vineyards as the first wine, but with grapes from slightly younger vines. It's a mainly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon blend, with a bit of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot and has been aged for 15 months in oak. The wine has wonderfully ripe red fruits and is rich and very well rounded with sleek velvety, tongue coating, tannins.
When to drink:
Full and powerful yet graceful and elegant it easily lives up to its revered reputation and has plenty of ageing capacity.
