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.




Natalie's Review

Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove Dell'ornellaia, Bolgheri Superiore Merlot Cabernets Sauvignon 2008, D.O.C., Tuscany, Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: This estate has a track record envied by wineries all over the world. Demand today for the wines of Tenuta dell’ Ornellaia has never been higher. Le Serre Nuove, a blend of Merlot, Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, and Petit Verdot, is a bright and fruity wine with red and black berries tinged by subtle oak nuances of chocolate and clove. My note: Tasty with dark fruit. Needs cellar time. A little short on the finish but none the less satisfying, especially for those who collection verticals of this wine.
