Description

Supposedly the 'second wine' of the iconic Ornellaia, winemaker Axel Heinz doesn't consider it as such, preferring to think of it as a different expression rather than a lesser one. Our tasting in February 2017 through the entire Ornellaia range confirmed this to be the case - Le Serre Nuove ('The Green House') was a standout value, usually scoring only a point or 2 behind Ornellaia out of 100, yet being about a quarter the price! This 2014 vintage is 50% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot.

Smells

Gorgeously harmonious aromatics of dried Mediterranean herbs, plum, coconut, sandalwood and cedar.

Tastes

Such a beautiful wine when young, we tried the 2007 straight after it and it was only just reaching its best... no special need to wait, since it's so good now, but every year you do will only improve it through 2030.
