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.

The vibrant palate has intense bright cherry fruit flavours balanced by seamless tannins and mineral freshness. Complex and refined this wine will be delicious to drink over the next few years but will age well for at least a decade. Drink from 2019.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

A classic Brunello! A wine that perfectly walks the line between power, opulence and restrained elegance. The nose displays black plum, Morello cherry, and cedar bark. Restrained at first, after a few minutes in the glass the flavours start to develop. Crunchy hedgerow fruits, plums, sweet spice and warm earth build towards a classic Brunello profile. Already delicious but a...
