Le Serre Nuovo dell’ Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC 2007

Blended Red from Italy - Tuscany
Review Date : 12-Feb-2017
Very dark, deep, black-hued red, near impenetrable with brick on edge. This has a full, solid and deeply packed nose of black berried fruits, with dark herbs and savoury secondary elements. This has size, power and plenty of fruit reserve to keep. Fulsome on palate, with considerable structure, the fruit matches the extract with ripe dark berry and plum flavours, maybe a hint of sur maturite, but bold and succulent. The acidity still lends fresh energy. A very satisfying, mouthfilling wine with some complexing development. Another 6-8+ years possible. A blend of 40% each Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the wine aged 15 months total in 25% new oak. 18.5+/20 Feb 2017 RRP $N/A
