Ornellaia - Le Serre Nuove dell’ Ornellaia 2014
Ornellaia - Le Serre Nuove dell’ Ornellaia (91 TSW)
After two more years in the cellar I retasted this beautiful red from Bolgheri. Two extra points.
Famous second wine from the Ornellaia estate raised at the foothills around Bolgheri facing the Mediterranean coast. 2014 was a very unusual year with warm winter, cold and rainy august and a very late harvest on 6 september of the Merlot grapes and even 22 october with the last Cabernet Sauvignons.
Despite the fact that the climate did not really cooperate, they still managed to make a very nice wine.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot.
In the glass a ruby red color with some light transperency.
On the nose aromas of blackberries and plums with hints of leather, spices and vanilla.
On the palate dry, medium+ bodied with medium+ acidity and fine grained tannins. Flavours are a recall of the nose with a long persistent final.
