2007 Ornellaia "Le Serre Nuove" Bolgheri Rosso
Le Serre Nuove presents an intense and harmonious bouquet that is accented by opulent notes of black cherry, chocolate, cinnamon spice, leather and tobacco. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot ends long on the close with enduring density and velvety texture.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The just-bottled 2007 Le Serre Nuove opens with sweet scents of mocha, berries, spices and flowers that lead to a soft, seamless expression of fruit. This is an accessible, silky-textured Serre Nuove to enjoy while the 2006 rests in the cellar. It is an unusually harmonious, refined wine that is sure to deliver much pleasure over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022. (AG)
Really dark in color, with tar and licorice aromas and hints of raisin. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and an attractive finish. Fruity and polished. The second wine of Ornellaia. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best after 2011. (JS)
