    "Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia" Bolgheri DOC 2017 <br>METHUSALEM 6 Liters in OWC

    The anniversary edition on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Ornellaia's famous second wine is presented in a decidedly elegant garment. A bewitching scent of sweet, dark berries with a hint of cassis, cedar wood and antique leather. Very well balanced on the palate, of beautiful viscosity with an elegant finish. Fine-meshed tannin, restrained mineral tones and a wonderfully polished fruit accompany a remarkable finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia 2017 expresses itself through an extraordinary elegance. Although it can be enjoyed young, it has a great ageing potential. Its colour is an intense ruby red with violet reflections. On the nose it shows a beautiful complexity with aromas of small red berries and balsamic notes reminiscent of Mediterranean maquis. In the mouth, the high quality of the tannins is particularly noticeable, which prove to be smooth and silky. The tasting ends in a long and unexpectedly fresh finish". Olga Fusari (Kellermeisterin Ornellaia)

    "An integrated, ripe red with currant, berry and light tobacco character. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Second wine of Ornellaia. Lovely now, but better in a year or two. Try after 2021." James Suckling

    "The 2017 Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is plump, juicy and so seductive, with pretty floral and savory top notes that add a touch of freshness to balance things out. Medium in body and wonderfully inviting, Le Serre Nuove also has quite a bit of energy for the year. Sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, licorice and mint nuances linger in the glass. This is such a pretty wine." Vinous

    "The Ornellaia 2017 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is a real charmer of a wine with a sweet, soft and supple disposition. The exact blend is 54% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. Fermentation starts in stainless steel, and the wine is then racked over to barrique to complete malolactic fermentation. It ages in oak for 15 months. The whole entire presentation here is seamless, from start to finish, with dark fruit and cherry slowly folding into leather, spice and pipe tobacco. Fruit was denser and more compact in this hot and dry vintage, and you absolutely feel that extra richness and concentration. I recommend another quick two years of aging to relax the wine's tannins that are extra tight in 2017." Robert Parker
