2016 Le Serre Nuove, Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, Bolgheri, Tuscany

The 2016 Le Serre Nuove is a Bolgheri of the highest order, that would pass for a wine at many times the price. Cassis and plums, with hints of fig and lovely spice, there fine and focussed precision to the palate of this delicious wine. A brilliant effort for Axel Heinz and his team.

TASTING NOTES

This is a fantastic interpretation from Bolgheri. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is made with fruit from the same vineyard plots that go into the Bolgheri Superiore, only this is a second selection if you will. Generally speaking, fruit from the younger vines goes here. This wine gives us a very pretty glimpse of what we can expect of the high-end releases from this classic vintage. The fruit is rock solid, delineated, tonic and firm. The pleasure factor awarded here is very high thanks to the wine's inner softness, silky tannins and soothing extract. The bouquet is seamless and pristine.
