Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia Bolgheri 2016

Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is Ornellaia’s second wine, made with the grapes mainly from the estate’s younger vineyards and is made with the same dedication and attention to detail as the grand wine of Ornellaia. 

2016 is an exceptional vintage, perfect balance of fruit concentration and acidity. The wine has a deep colour, intense and ripe fruit flavours with slightly spicy roasted aromas, freshness of balsamic. It is beautifully round, velvety, full and harmonious.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

94 points, Wine Advocate
This is a fantastic interpretation from Bolgheri. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is made with fruit from the same vineyard plots that go into the Bolgheri Superiore, only this is a second selection if you will. Generally speaking, fruit from the younger vines goes here. This wine gives us a very pretty glimpse of what we can expect of the high-end releases from this classic vintage. The fruit is rock solid, delineated, tonic and firm. The pleasure factor awarded here is very high thanks to the wine's inner softness, silky tannins and soothing extract. The bouquet is seamless and pristine. by Monica Larner
