Professional Reviews For This Wine

Vinfolio | Rating: 91

50% merlot, 35% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Lovely, vibrant aromas of ripe-off-the-vine blackberry and black raspberry with nuamnces of cedar box and sweet tobacco. Full, elegant entry that reiterates the berry fruit and is joined by delicate streams of plum and black chery. A velvety sort of muscularity gives it definition along with the structure of sophisticated and proper tannins. A classic and sublime example of Ornellaia's second wine.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Chewy and structured, with lots of berry and vanilla cream aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with lovely concentration. Slightly hollow at the moment, but should come together with bottle age. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

The 2005 Le Serre Nuove is the second wine of Ornellaia. In top vintages it is the hidden gem in this lineup from a price to quality perspective. The 2005 reveals gorgeous aromatics along with sweet black cherries, blackberries, spices, smoke and toasted oak. It is a delicate, feminine wine to enjoy over the next decade or so.

About This Producer

A premiere estate located in Tuscany's Bolgheri coast, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia produces the renowned Merlot-based blends Masseto, Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove, and Le Volte. The unique microclimate and combination of clay in the soil eventually proved ideal, epitomized by the 2001 Masseto, which garnered 100 points from the Wine Spectator. The pinnacle achievement at Ornellaia, the Masseto has developed a cult following for its limited allocation.

Ornellaia, a Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc blend which debuted in 1985, is the estate's signature wine. Le Serre Nuove, which requires less aging and displays a more fruit forward style, is something of a "second wine" and joins Le Volte, a Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot blend, as wines at a younger age.
