Le Serre Nuove dell’ Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC 2014

Blended Red from Italy - Tuscany
Review Date : 12-Feb-2017
Deepish red with garnet hues on the edge. The nose is very elegant with fragrant red fruits melded with cedary and spicy oak. This has finesse and intensity, and has beauty. The palate is very elegantly presented with tightly bound red fruits and cedary oak flavours. The tannins are very refined and powdery, and the acidity soft, resulting in a smooth structure. With aeration, the tannins and acidity become more prominent, but the wine finished with good fruit richness and succulence. This appears youthful. 5-6 years. A blend 50% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot, from younger vines, approx. 15 y.o., the wine aged 15 months total in 25% new oak. 17.5+/20 Feb 2017 RRP $100.00
