2020 Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia
2020 Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia Ornellaia is one of the most respected, collected, sought after red wine in the world. It goes down with the icons, the First Growth Bordeaux’s, the Cult Napa Cab’s and the other great Super Tuscan’s from Bolgheri. This is as good as full bodied red wine gets, and deserves a spot in any serious wine collector’s cellar. Everyone knows the $300 plus Ornellaia, but did you know from the same Winery they make the 2020 Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove. Priced under Sixty a bottle is one of the great all-rounders in full bodied red wine. A true taste of Ornellaia at a fraction of the price. The wine is crafted from the same grapes and the same vineyards and made with the same passion as the $300 plus Ornellaia. The Le Serre Nuova is styled very much the same as Ornellaia, one of the most famous iconic wines in the world but in a more ready drinking style. This is definitely one of the smart buys in Italian wine. The winery describes the wine as showing; “phenomenal balance between body, fullness and elegance.” We totally agree and strongly recommend!
Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia 2020 unabashedly reveals generous aromas of ripe red fruit. Soft and enticing on the palate, showing phenomenal balance between body, fullness and elegance. Winemaker.
The Ornellaia 2020 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia (a proprietary blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is a generous and darkly toned red blend that has the extra fruit fiber, sweetness and generous plumpness of a warm vintage. The fullness of the fruit is on full display, but in a very relaxed and natural manner. The wine never feels like too much. The tannins are yielding and velvety, and this purebred Tuscan red wraps thickly over the palate. It’s poised for near- and medium-term drinking.
