Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove Dell'ornellaia is a blend composed of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. It is medium bodied with nice aromas of integrated raspberry, prune, liquorice and smoky oak. Initially, the wine is a bit bretty, which goes away after some time in the decanter. The tannins are dusty and refined to tannic (decant between 1 to 2 hours) and the finish is long, smooth and with a bit of a minerality. It is good to drink now, but will nicely evolve for the next 10 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91.5 pts - recommended for a special occasion. Tasted Dec/10.
