Tasting Notes

A fabulous second wine, classic with great complexity. Masses of ripe round fruit, red berries on the nose and darker plummy fruit in the mouth. Notes of lavender and herbs develop. Tannins are smooth and the structure is firm and perfectly balanced with lovely freshness and a mineral kick on the finish.

Reviews & Scores

A gorgeous wine, the 2011 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuovo dell-Ornellaia (57% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 12% Cabernet Franc) opens with an inky dark, almost impenetrable appearance and beautifully chiseled - but abundantly intense - aromas of blackberry, dried cherry, rum cake, leather, moist pipe tobacco and chewy black licorice. The balance and harmony are seductive and impressive and the wine lasts many long seconds on the palate. Noticeable tannic backbone gives us hope in its cellar potential. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. Score: 94 Points Monica Larner - The Wine Advocate
