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. - Monica Larner

There is plenty of depth in the glass, but less of the appeal I saw just a few months ago. The high tannins of the vintage and the relatively large amount of Petit Verdot (14%) are both very marked at this stage in the wine's life. Readers holding the 2011 are best off cellaring their bottles for at least another 1-2 years. The 2011 Le Serre Nuove is a powerhouse.

A wine with a dense palate and ripe and round tannins. Full and very intense with a velvety textured tannin structure and a long and flavorful finish. Give it two or three years to show even more. Bordeaux blend. Superb... A wine with a dense palate and ripe and round tannins. Full and very intense with a velvety textured tannin structure and a long and flavorful finish. Give it two or three years to show even more. Bordeaux blend. Superb second wine from Ornellaia.

Sporting an opaque black core that barely budges at the rim. This is reticent at first, requiring airation to reveal aromas of tar, marcerate black fruits and leather, underscored by dried herbs and lift of violet & hibiscus floral notes. This is rich, full bodied and wonderfull balanced. Flavors of mocha, raspberries and dried herbs coat your mouth with wonderfully integrated tannins that give a long seamless finish.  A knock out Serre Nuove, quite possibly the best to date.  While enjoyable now it will really impress with another 3-5 years in bottle and sing through 2025.

Ornellaia’s second wine, made from the younger vines on the estate, boasts ripe fruit and a fresh, accessible style. It offers sensations of juicy wild berries, currants and plum accented with notes of mocha and black pepper alongside round, soft tannins.
