Tasting Notes

Le Serre Nuove is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It combines the structure and balance of Ornellaia with the freshness and accessibility of a wine destined for younger drinking. The 2012 has an intoxicating and heady bouquet with opulent and exotic sweet cassis fruit characters complimented by rich spicy notes and dark smoky/savoury aromas. The palate is ripe and textured with velvety though structured tannins and lively damson fruit flavours. The finish is long, vibrant and refreshing. A wine of effortless class and sophistication that will be approachable in a few years but has fine ageing potential. Drink from 2015 – 2030.

Reviews & Scores

I am enthusiastic about 2012. It was a hot, dry year, but with some rain at the end. The 2012s showed more freshness and vibrancy than the 2011s. In top vintages it is the hidden gem in this lineup from a price to quality perspective... I have little doubt that current vintages of Le Serre Nuove are actually better wines than the early vintages of Ornellaia.

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.
