TASTING NOTES

Silky concentration and voluptuous fruit – this is irresistible. Generous graphite-smoke complexity with super-fine tannins, and satisfying fruit extract and freshness. The relative coolness of 2012 has brought the Serre Nuove back to a classically balanced style, but with all the decadence you would want from a ‘super-Tuscan’ estate.
