54% MERLOT 26% CABERNET SAUVIGNON 14 CABERNET FRANC 6% PETIT VERDOT.

Coming primarily from the Estate’s younger vineyards and made with the same passion and attention to detail
as Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is a true “second vin”. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon,
Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia combines generosity and depth of flavour with
an engaging and vibrant personality. After a dry 2012, winter 2013 was characterised by mild but very rainy weather, which caused a delay in
budding of up to 15 days. The cold and the rain also led to an irregular and very long flowering period – with a
two-week delay compared to the average – which reduced production and resulted in uncoordinated
development of grapes. Fortunately the summer, which arrived as always at the end of June, was perfect, dry
and sunny, but with a few peaks of intense heat in July and August. The slow vegetative development was
ultimately beneficial because it deferred ripening until after the hottest period. The August storms significantly
lowered temperatures, especially at night, which favoured aromatic expression, but led to a later than average
harvest, between 9 September and 14 October, with predominantly sunny weather without excessive heat. Harvesting took place by hand in 15 kg boxes, and the grapes were graded and selected by hand on a double
sorting table, before and after de-stemming, and finally soft-pressed. Each variety and each parcel was vinified
separately. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel, at temperatures of between 26° and 30°C for
two weeks followed by maceration for a total of around 10-15 days. Malolactic fermentation was started in
stainless steel, and completed after transfer to barrels (25% new and 75% a year old). The wine remained in
Ornellaia’s temperature-controlled cellar for a further 15 months. It was assembled after the first 12 months
and then reintroduced in the barrels for a further 3 months. After bottling, it was aged for an additional six
months prior to release.
