Wine Review: This opaque and almost pitch black colored Italian red wine opens with a mild black cherry bouquet with a touch of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle black cherry with very nicely integrated oak. There was also a note of red currant detected as well. The finish is dry and its mild tannins make it very food friendly. It would be an ideal match for veal parmigianna. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2007 was a sunny vintage, and in spite of the relatively low temperatures, the grapes ripened perfectly, preserving their complexity and aromatic freshness. Intense in colour, Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia 2007 presents a complex nose, with intense red berry fruit, sweet spices, and balsamic mint and eucalyptus accents. Ample and silky on the palate, it displays an elegant, vibrant tannic structure, and fresh sweet fruit with intense minty accents.
