Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove Dell'ornellaia, produced mainly from young wines, is a medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with nice aromas of slightly yogurty blackberry, black cherry and subtle oak. It is nicely balanced, with tannins that are refined to tannic (decant for 30 to 60 min) and a long finish. It should be put away for couple of years at least, drink 2013-2020. My impression: NICE, 90 pts - bit pricey for what it is, mainly you are paying for the name. Tasted Dec/11.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
