Peter Maude Fine Wines

2020, Le Serre Nuove Dell'Ornellaia, Bolgheri DOC Rosso


Smoke on the nose, tobacco, smells a bit green and underripe, the capsicum and herbal spice elements sticking out. Elegant at first, forward but dry from the start, the tannins are a little raspy and grainy giving the predominant texture and covering up the fruit pleasure. There is fruit and this has fresh, mouthwatering acidity but they're lost to the tannic hold and sense of exuberance to the wine. Youthful and a little wired right now with tension at the fore. 13% Petit Verdot completes the blend. Director Axel Heinz, winemaker Olga Fusari. 90/100 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.

Drinking Window: 2024 - 2030
