Winemaker Notes

Mid ruby color. Shy aromas on the first nose with floral and black peppered dark fruits. Mouth is generous like the vintage with cherry jam and red currant for the freshness. Well structured with youthful still tight tannins. Harmonious and balanced with a long finish. 

Critical Acclaim

JS95 James Suckling
A rich Brunello with plenty of ripe-fruit, spice, porcini-mushroom and nutmeg character. Full body. Dense and flavorful. Ripe and polished tannins. Excellent structure and focus. Give this time to come together. Try after 2021. Check Wine Searcher Price · Download Shelftalker
 
WS94 Wine Spectator
Cherry and plum fruit is underscored by dense, dusty tannins in this ripe, fluid red. Lively acidity keeps this well-defined, as iron, earth and sanguine accents emerge. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2022 through 2038.

Originally a partnership with consulting oenologist Roberto Cipresso, La Fiorita is now entirely owned by New York native Natalie Oliveros. She has hired renowned consultant Maurizio Castelli and moved towards ageing in larger French oak casks. Wild forest berries, spice and sweet mint aromas are immediately appealing. It's full and rich with lots of stuffing and clingy tannins. A touch of astringency appears on the finish but overall this is well-balanced. Drinking Window 2020 - 2029
