2010 La Fortuna Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1162547 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of wet earth, meat and dried fruits. Some nuts and spices. Complex. Full body, with super fine tannins and fabulous intensity and richness. Dried cherry and candied citrus fruit. Fabulous finish. You want to drink this now. But shows superb finesse and intensity. Why wait? Inner quote mark (12/2014)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Saturated with cherry, raspberry, spice and tobacco aromas and flavors, this strikes a balanced between the supple texture, succulent acidity and refined yet gripping tannins. Really sings on the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. Inner quote mark (4/2015)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Intense berry, violet, menthol and white-spice aromas lead the nose, with a whiff of new leather. The vibrant palate delivers crunchy red cherry, fleshy raspberry, baking spice and savory herb alongside assertive but refined tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2018–2018. Inner quote mark (5/2015)

K&L Notes

Angelo Zannoni is the fifth generation of winemakers at La Fortuna; the winery celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2007. La Fortuna's estate is situated just a few kilometers east of the town of Montalcino and abuts the prestigious Fuligni estate and is close to Siro Pacenti. In the 1990s Angelo's father Gioberto purchased a vineyard on the south face of Montalcino just south of the village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate near the famed producers Ciacci Piccolomini and Uccelliera. That vineyard is now blended with the estate vineyard, balancing the core of structure from the home vineyard with the sun blessed ripeness from their southern vineyard. La Fortuna's wines display a consistent concentration of fresh, energetic fruit coupled with layers of a denser fruit and sweet ripeness that is full of intense dark cherry aromatics.

The nose is dark cherry, yet intertwined with earth, Tuscan herbs, and hints of fresh leather in a relaxed flow from the glass. On the palate it is the texture that grabs your attention, it isn’t dense but energetic, fruit …the fruit in this vintage is hard to explain, it tastes less fruity and by that I mean it is more complex, less simple, not just sweet and squishy, it is more developed, nuanced--I hesitate to use the word layered, because it seems too simple, but it is enchanting. The wine has tannic structure that is evident but is in the background as the acidic balance lengthens and lengthens the finish. Such balance and power yet so effortless, the wine is a pleasure to drink now, yet the greatness will be down the road another 5-10 years. The Best La Fortuna Brunello ever.
Drink from 2015 to 2030

Gioberto Zannoni and his son Angelo have hit another one out of the ballpark with this vintage. Gorgeous core of perfumed ripe fruit, plum, cassis and kirsch, some leather and cola mid-palate and earthiness that melds into bitter cocoa powder, spices and minerals on the finish. Lush, and flows across your palate, long finish--just WOW! This is a classic 2010 Brunello, and needs HOURS to open up or some years of aging.
