Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia

DOC Bolgheri

Coming primarily from the Estate’s younger vineyards and made with the same passion and attention to detail as Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is a true “second vin”. A blend of Merlot (64%), Cabernet Sauvignon (17%), Cabernet Franc (10%) & Petit Verdot (9%), Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia combines generosity and depth of flavor with an engaging and vibrant personality.

The clusters are selected by hand on a double sorting table, before and after de-stemming, and finally gently crushed. Each variety and each parcel is vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel, followed by maceration of around 10-15 days. The wine is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels (25% new and 75% a year old).
