Winemaker's Notes

Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia 2011, a dense, concentrated wine yet at the same time elegant and smooth, expresses perfectly the superb quality of the 2011 vintage. A remarkably emphatic nose is laden with well-ripened wild red berryfruit, spice, and peppery balsam. In the mouth, its superb ripeness immediately impresses, as do the silky, high-gloss tannins, dense-packed yet supple. It displays significant ageing potential, but is perfectly enjoyable today.

Blend: 57% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, 12% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous wine, the 2011 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuovo dell-Ornellaia (57% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 12% Cabernet Franc) opens with an inky dark, almost impenetrable appearance and beautifully chiseled - but abundantly intense - aromas of blackberry, dried cherry, rum cake, leather, moist pipe tobacco and chewy black licorice. The balance and harmony are seductive and impressive and the wine lasts many long seconds on the palate. Noticeable tannic backbone gives us hope in its cellar potential. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. "
94 Points

"The 2011 Le Serre Nuove is striking for its beauty and symmetry. Some vintages of Le Serre Nuove are open and radiant, others are more structured. The 2011 seems to bring together elements of both in a wine of superb pedigree and pure class. Mocha, dark raspberries, tobacco and grilled herbs all flesh out on the inviting, vivid finish. Today, the 2011 is absolutely singing and points to a spectacular vintage at Tenuta dell'Ornellaia. This is impressive juice. In 2011 the blend is 57% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 12% Cabernet Franc. The relatively high amounts of both Petit Verdot and Franc are very much felt."
94 Points

"A wine with a dense palate and ripe and round tannins. Full and very intense with a velvety textured tannin structure and a long and flavorful finish. Give it two or three years to show even more. Bordeaux blend. Superb second wine from Ornellaia. "

Learn About Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Map ItMap It

In 1981, Marchese Lodovico Antinori breathed new life into Tenuta dell' Ornellaia, an estate whose potential had been ignored for decades. With the help of Andre Tchelistcheff, the famous agronomist, Antinori planted the first French vines in Bolgheri, which lies in the heart of Tuscany's coastal region, Maremma. The estate yields some of the finest Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc in Tuscany. In 2002, Marchesi de' Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi became owners of Tenuta dell'Ornellaia, which is now owned exclusively by Marchesi de' Frescobaldi.
