TASTING NOTES

I have always been a big fan of this wine. The 2013 is a generous blend of Merlot (32%), Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot (12%). The wine presents an intensely drinkable style with soft fruit nuances of cherry, spice, grilled herb and leather. The integration of those aromas is absolutely seamless. In the mouth, Le Serre Nuove is soft, lush and beautifully persistent.

92/100

Wonderful depth of fruit to this wine with blackcurrants, spices, mints and flowers. Full body, firm and silk tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and polished red.
