A delightful nose of red berries, wild strawberries and black cherries lead to a crunchy palate of blackcurrants, fresh fig and wild strawberries spiced up with black pepper. There is huge depth and power to the fruit which is beautifully encased in a fine, sinewy tannic structure. The bold fruit is underpinned by a complex savoury minerality and a pure seam of fresh acidity. This is long and eminently impressive. Drink from 2021.
Le Serre Nuove dell’ Ornellaia 2016 benefits again from an exceptional vintage that highlights all the features ofBolgheri’s exceptional climate. Dark in colour, the wine shows a charming nose of perfectly ripe red fruit and spices. Thepalate is rich and well-rounded with beautiful velvety-textured tannins that coat the palate. A wine that combinesimmediate pleasure and great ageing capacity. Axel Heinzmore
