James Suckling: 95 Points
Currants sweet tobacco walnut husk and flowers on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied it grows on the palate with firm yet polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Very solid and well-crafted second wine from Ornellaia. Drink after 2023.

A lot going on the nose here; coffee, leather, blackcurrant, black cherries. This is amazing from the start, such incredible texture, grip and depth of flavours which are dark and rich, full of black liquorice, tar, coffee grounds and menthol aspects that just coat the whole mouth. This feels quite serious - it's rich, layered, so deep and heady, structured but so well handled, detailed and sculpted. There is freshness but you get pure power here. Round and full but elegant at the same time. Great stuff.

A blend of Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot the 2019 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia shows a greater degree of focus and detail compared to the previous vintage that I tasted at the same time. This wine reveals the sharp contours and etched character of the Cabernet Franc especially with black licorice and black pepper. The results are linear and pure. Elegant fruit notes of blackberry and dark currant add to the thick layering of the wine. I tasted this sample not long after bottling and we can expect the wine to hit the market in September 2021.
