The Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia 2018 offers a clear fruit, solid as a rock, outlined, tonic and firm. Great softness and silky tannins. Long and persistent
Le Serre Nuove from Tenuta dell’Ornellaia is obtained mainly from the company’s youngest vineyards in Bolgheri and produced with the same passion and attention to detail reserved for Ornellaia, in a nutshell an authentic “second wine”.
The harvest is strictly by hand in 15 kg crates and the bunches are selected on a double sorting table before and after destemming and subjected to soft pressing at the end. Each variety and each parcel is vinified separately. The aging of the wine is in barriques in the Ornellaia cellar at a controlled temperature for a period of about 15 months.
After the first 12 months the assembly takes place and then the wine is subsequently reintroduced into the barriques where it spends another 3 months. Le Serre Nuove remains in the bottle for six months before being launched on the market.
