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

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.

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.

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.

Dark and smooth, exhibiting blackberry, black cherry and subtle chocolate flavors that give way to firm tannins on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2021. – BS
