95pts Wine Spectator

This red boasts sweet, ripe cherry, raspberry and plum flavors, with tar, spice and licorice in supporting roles. Vibrant, harmonious and expressive through the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2035.

92pts Wine & Spirits

Floral and mineral rather than fruity in character, this wine rides on its silken richness and delicacy. There’s a lot of flavor packed into the sangiovese tannins, with more complexity on offer as those tannins relent in the coming years. Brunello refinement from galestro soils in Castelnuovo dell’Abate.

92pts Wine Enthusiast

A Brunello on the bold and ripe side, with smoked bacon, blackberry, sweet spice, rum cake and black licorice. It shows impressive staying power. It's tannic, firm and ready for a long aging future ahead.

Winemaker Notes

The wine has a deep ruby red color, aroma with notes of red fruit, spices and tobacco; velvety and complex on the palate with fragrant tannins and excellent sapidity; long persistence.

Winery Notes

The municipality of Montalcino in the south end of Tuscany covers a hill that reaches about 600 meters above sea level - Fattoria La Fiorita lies on the southeast facing slope. La Fiorita was established in 1992 by one of the world's top winemakers, Roberto Cipresso. Cipresso had already made a name for himself in Montalcino, but has also made headlines as the winemaker at one of Argentina’s top wineries, Achaval Ferrer. At La Fiorita, he started with only one half hectare of vineyard, but soon acquired some of the best land for Sangiovese in Montalcino... This was the beginning of La Fiorita’s greatness. In 2011, La Fiorita embarked upon a new chapter when actress and wine fanatic, Natalie Oliveros, joined forces with Cipresso to take La Fiorita to the next and highest quality level.
Cipresso’s wines are consistently highly regarded and rated. His winemaking style is focused on the “terroir” expression of each vineyard, along with a minimal-intervention approach in the cellar.
