The 2014 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove is a lush and well measured red wine that does not shy back in terms of intensity. Neither does it overachieve in that department. This blend of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot marches to a steady pace with good fruit definition followed by spice, leather and fresh tobacco leaf. The wine does flaunt its youth and charm. There is a touch of tannic tightness or sourness on the close that should relax within a year or two.
Made with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this has aromas of black-skinned berry, violet, toasted oak and a whiff of dark baking spice. The soft palate offers black currant, espresso, French oak and a hint of dried sage alongside fine-grained tannins and bright acidity.
Medium expressiveness, red currant, plum, shoe leather, and hints of rose petals. Palate: Medium bodied, spicy red fruit attack, with rusty earth undertones, good balance, thins a bit through the back end. Finish: Medium length sense of red fruit - pomegranate and raspberry, minerals, and earth. Probably an 89, but get's an extra point for actually being consumed in Italy.~
