Le Serre Nuove dell' Ornellaia 2015 perfectly represents its exceptional vintage, combining an ideal balance of elements in a way that rarely happens; a balance of ripeness, substance and a particular pleasantness. With an intense colour and youthful appearance, its intense and ripe fruity aroma with subtle spicey and toasted highlights are detected on the nose. Well-rounded and satin-smooth on the palate, great texture and harmoniously balanced, with a succulent fruitiness which ends with a zesty finish with no sharp edges, freshened by balsamic notes.

Plenty of blackberry and rust with tile and stone undertones. Full body, tannic and structured. A big and flavorful red. Better in 2020 when it is a little softer.

Wine Advocate

This is a stunning and exuberant wine that drinks with beautiful intensity and personality. The 2015 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is made with fruit from the estate's young vines. Fruit from the older vines is instead directed to the top-shelf expressions. If this wine is any indication of what we can expect from the next vintage of Ornellaia to hit the market, we are in for a very special treat. This is a complete and richly concentrated expression that drinks with seamless intensity. It pits power against elegance with confidence and grace.

A blend of 64% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 9% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Le Serre Nuove comes from slightly younger vines and was aged in 25% new oak. It offers a deeper, richer, more Cabernet-like character in its cassis, black cherry, graphite, licorice, and scorched earth aromas and flavors. The second wine of the estate, it has medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit, fine, fine tannin and a great finish. It will cruise for at least a decade in the cellar.

Wine Spectator

Lush and modern, this evokes black cherry, blackberry, plum and light earth and iron flavors. A dusty swath of tannins girds the finish, but this should come together nicely in a year or two. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2020 through 2028. 15,700 cases made.

Aromas of cassis, tobacco and ground pepper follow over to the austere palate along with anise and prune. Tightly woven fine-grained tannins offer taut support. Drink sooner rather than later to catch the fruit and freshness.
