2018 Le Serre Nuove
This exotic red blend derives from the iconic Bolgheri estate of Ornellaia located on the Tuscan coast. The makeup of this wine is younger vines of Cabernet Sauvignon 33%, Merlot 32%, Cabernet Franc 18% and 17% Petit Verdot. Behind its deeply colored ruby hue is a bouquet of purple violets. Within is a racy wine with a framework of Morello Cherries, mixed red berries and a hint of anise. This wine speaks more of finesse and elegance than power. There are some complex baking spices and textures infused into the background of this seamless beauty.
