94 points James Suckling, 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and 90 points Vinous. Wine Tasting Notes: The Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia's strong point is the equilibrium it achieves between bouquet and structure. Its color is bright, and at the same time deep and intense. The younger vines contribute fresh fruit accents to complement the spicy minty notes provided by the more mature vines. A sip stimulates the entire palate, with the ample entrance of the Merlot, which extends, supported by the structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and amplified by the freshness of the Petit Verdot's tannins. 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot Alcohol 13.5%


94 points James Suckling: Wonderful depth of fruit to this wine with blackcurrants, spices, mints and flowers. Full body, firm and silk tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and polished red. This needs another three of four years to come together but shows style and beauty. Superb second wine from Ornellaia.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: I have always been a big fan of this wine. The 2013 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove is a generous blend of Merlot (32%), Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot (12%). The wine presents an intensely drinkable style with soft fruit nuances of cherry, spice, grilled herb and leather. The integration of those aromas is absolutely seamless. In the mouth, Le Serra Nuove is soft, lush and beautifully persistent.

90 points Vinous: The 2013 Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is polished and refined to the core. Mocha, smoke, black cherries, licorice, torrefaction and dark spices meld together in the glass. This is a relatively open, mid-weight vintage for the Serre Nuove, with expressive aromatics and open-knit fruit. The new oak is especially apparent here. In some recent vintages, Le Serre Nuove has come across as almost too serious of a second wine. That is not the case in 2013, where Le Serre Nuove is quite distinct from Ornellaia, and also much more approachable right out of the gate. The 2013 also has a relatively high amount of Cabernet Franc because less was used in the Ornellaia than normal.
