2011 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove

2011 Tenuta dell’Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove tonight. In-cre-di-ble. This is so complex it’s just silly. It does have more typical black currant and cherry but then there is menthol, eucalyptus, mint and dusty earth. It’s honestly difficult not to drink more than half a bottle between two adults because it is so delicious. Despite all that deliciousness, this has the balance and structure to go a couple of decades and actually get better. I wish I had bought more.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
