95pts Wine Spectator

Macerated plum, black cherry, spice and iron aromas and flavors are matched to a vibrant structure in this red, which is firm and dry, with the muscular tannins wrapping the lingering finish in their strong grip. Shows energy from beginning to end. Best from 2024 through 2045. 500 cases made, 200 cases imported.

95pts Vinous

Deep red. Captivating aromas of red cherry, strawberry, sweet pipe tobacco, and flint. Impressively built, multifaceted and layered, this boasts very pure and round flavors similar to the aromas. The finish is long and dense, and features polished tannins and a suave texture. Knockout Brunello, probably the best I have had from La Fiorita in a very long time, and likely ever. Noticeably less floral than the 2015 classico Brunello from this estate but more complex and much deeper. Made with grapes taken from the best part of the Pian Bossolino and Poggio al Sole vineyards. The NO on the label stands for Natalie Oliveros, the estate owner; a real knockout, this wine is only made in the best vintages.

95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

La Fiorita's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Fiore di No shows a saturated and nicely enriched presentation with dark ruby highlights. Compared to the estate's classic Brunello, this special selection offers increased concentration and density with blackberry and cherry highlighted by spice, campfire ash and grilled herb. The fruit for this wine comes from three sites: the best part of Pian Bossolino, Poggio al Sole and Giardinello. But like the other wine, Fiore di No has that distinctive sweet spot with cherry, candied orange and sweet baking spice. This limited 3,200-bottle release is characterized by brightness, linearity and increased focus.

95pts Wine Enthusiast

Enveloping and delicious, this fragrant red opens with aromas of ripe plum, baking spice, blue flower and an earthy whiff of new leather. Full bodied and concentrated, it also has an almost weightless grace and poise, delivering succulent black cherry, fleshy raspberry, star anise and cinnamon before an espresso close. Fine-grained tannins provide polished support. Drink 2024–2031

95pts James Suckling

This has sophisticated aromas of fresh and dried blackberries, lavender, cloves and porcini mushrooms. It’s full-bodied with such richness to the fruit and a deep center palate. Firm, ultra fine tannins with dried-flower and spice character. Great length, too. Drink from 2023.

92pts Vinous

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Fiore di NO from La Fiorita is sweet and seductively spiced with masses of black cherries, mixed with cinnamon and clove. The textures are silky-smooth, ushering in ripe red fruits laced with minerals, as pretty inner florals amass toward the close. This turns grippy and structured through the finale; yet there’s something so drinkable and energetic about the Fiore di NO, that it will be hard to keep your hands off of it upon release.

Winemaker Notes

Fiore di NO is Natalie Oliveros’ thumbprint on La Fiorita to select and extract the essences of 3 of 4 of our vineyards: Pian Bossolino (360m), Giardinello (360m) and Collesorbo vineyard (220m). Made only on exceptional vintages, the diversity of soils carried by the Sangiovese from these 3 parcels give birth to wines where Natalie Oliveros has extracted the purest contrast between profound texture and freshness. She then blends these unique essences together to transform these singularities into a unity that is: Fiore di NO Brunello
