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.
