Twenty Years Of Elegant Complexity
Made with the same passion and attention to detail as Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is a true "second vin". For this release, the number twenty stands out at the centre of the wine’s new label, recalling a history of achievements which over the past two decades has accompanied Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia and enabled it to earn global recognition as a true Italian collectible. A wine with great capability for ageing—and yet also ready for enjoyment now, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot, it combines approachability and a depth of flavour with proven ageing potential.

Wine Maker Tasting Notes
“Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia 2017 expresses itself with outstanding elegance, combining great ageing potential with immediate enjoyability. A deep ruby red colour with purple highlights, a beautifully complex nose characterised by scents of small red berries and balsamic notes reminiscent of Mediterranean scrub vegetation. The quality of the tannins on the palate is particularly striking, smooth and silky. The mouthfeel ends with a lingering finish and unexpected freshness.”.
Olga Fusari – Winemaker – May 2019

Ornellaia, the renowned Tuscan wine estate, have released the 2017 vintage of Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia. The label which accompanies this new vintage is a celebratory one, marking the passage of twenty years since the decision to create a second wine with a blend of the four principal varieties of Ornellaia—Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot—which maintains the elegance and charm of the grand vin, while also being more approachable in youth
2017 will go down in history as being one of the hottest, driest years ever. Things were clear from the outset due to a particularly mild winter, with temperatures over three degrees higher than the seasonal average and rains within the norm. Consequently, the vines budded much sooner than usual, almost two weeks in advance. The vegetative cycle was accompanied by hot weather with very little rain from the month of March, and this was interrupted by a sudden drop in temperatures at the end of April, which caused frost in various parts of Tuscany. Thanks to the mitigating effects of the sea, temperatures remained above zero along the coast, preventing damage to the young buds. The hot, dry weather returned in May, limiting vegetative development and the size of the bunches, while flowering occurred under excellent conditions. There was virtually no rain in July and August but fortunately the hot weather was offset by cooler temperatures at night. The harvest began early, with the first Merlot on the 24th of August, continuing through until the last week of September in hot weather and under sunny skies. Rain finally put in an appearance around the middle of month, cooling things down and creating the perfect conditions for the later-ripening varieties.
