2019 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove dell' Ornellaia 1500ml
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2019 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia shows a greater degree of focus and detail compared to the previous vintage that I tasted at the same time. This wine reveals the sharp contours and etched character of the Cabernet Franc, especially with black licorice and black pepper. The results are linear and pure. Elegant fruit notes of blackberry and dark currant add to the thick layering of the wine. I tasted this sample not long after bottling, and we can expect the wine to hit the market in September 2021.

A lot going on the nose here; coffee, leather, blackcurrant, black cherries. This is amazing from the start, such incredible texture, grip and depth of flavours which are dark and rich, full of black liquorice, tar, coffee grounds and menthol aspects that just coat the whole mouth. This feels quite serious - it's rich, layered, so deep and heady, structured but so well handled, detailed and sculpted. There is freshness but you get pure power here. Round and full but elegant at the same time. Great stuff.
The 2019 Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is delicate, refined and exceptionally beautiful. Floral accents and mid-weight structure inform a Serre Nuove that is all finesse. Dark red berry fruit, licorice, incense, cedar, aromatic dark spice and leather all meld together in an understated, fabulous Serre Nuove that delivers the goods. The 2019 is especially aromatic for a Merlot-based wine from the Tuscan coast. Give it a few years to come together.

Made with the same passion and attention to detail we dedicate to Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is a
real “second vin”. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot which combines
immediate pleasantness and taste-olfactory complexity with a proven ageing potential.
WINEMAKER'S TASTING NOTES
54% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
"With its usual intense colour, Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia 2019 has a nose full of fresh notes of ripe red fruits, accompanied by a lively balsamic vein with aromatic hints of cypress and eucalyptus berries. The wine is soft and silky in the mouth, filling it with an elegant tannic texture and a sapid and persistent finish."

THE 2019 GROWING SEASON
More than most vintages, the year 2019 was characterised by a highly variable climate, which alternated periods of
cold and rain with long bouts of drought and heat. After a normal winter, the buding took place in the first week of April. The cold and rainy conditions throughout April and May significantly slowed down the vegetative vine growth, leading to a 10-day delay in flowering compared to the average. Very hot, rainless weather suddenly arrived in June, reaching temperature peaks of 37°C at the end of the month. The weather stayed warm and sunny throughout the summer with temperatures 2°C above average and 45 consecutive days without rain. The long dry period was interrupted by two days of rain in the last week of July, bringing the temperature back to the seasonal norm, with ideal conditions for ripening.
The harvest began slowly on 5th September. As usual, the last week of September saw a lowering of temperatures which made it possible to preserve a great finesse and aromatic freshness. Sunny conditions returned after another rainy event on the 21st September, which allowed us to conclude the harvest of the later ripening varieties on 4th October
