2015 La Fiorita Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

SKU #1522163 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This rich red is energetic and balanced, saturated with black cherry, plum and mineral flavors. Accents of wild rosemary and sage chime in as this remains fresh and long on the iron and underbrush aftertaste. (BS) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of plums and berries with flowers and dried meat. It’s full-bodied with round, juicy tannins and an extremely polished and beautiful finish. Hints of walnut and spice at the end, not to mention ash. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This Riserva from La Fiorita boasts a full and generous style with pretty richness, concentration and ample intensity. This pretty wine really does hit those 2015 vintage expectations dead on. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva offers plush fruit and good softness with cherry, cassis, spice, potting soil and candied orange peel. There is balanced intensity here with Sangiovese purity that cedes to lightly toasted aromas. Natalie Oliveros and the team at La Fiorita are almost ready to break in their new winery. In fact, 2020 was supposed to be their first vintage in the structure, but COVID-19 delays mean they will wait another year. In addition to a classic Brunello and a Riserva, the estate added a new Brunello called Fiore di No that we saw in 2015 and now again in 2016. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark La Fiorita is on an upward trajectory and this Riserva is one of the most promising wines I have tasted from the estate. It comes exclusively from the Pian Bossolino vineyard, a 3.1-hectare parcel in the area of Castelnuovo dell’Abate. Immediately fragrant, it offers dark, ripe plum with anise, dried herbs and wildflowers. The palate sports plush tannins and a confident plumpness, though it's suitably reined in with enough tension to deliver a satisfying mouthful. Vibrant, energetic and really quite succulent.

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva from La Fiorita is a pretty, floral and sweetly spiced effort. Dried roses, black cherry, cinnamon, clove and a dusting of cocoa create a seductive display. It’s silky in texture and polished, with depths of dark red berry fruit, wild herbal tones and a note of menthol, which forms toward the close. The first hint of tannin comes through in the finish, yet it is perfectly balanced by residual acids with an air of inner rose lingering long. (EG) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Sourced exclusively from the Pian Bossolino vineyard and aged for over two years in French oak barrels, the 2015 Brunello Riserva is rich with aromas of sun-dried leather, blackcurrant, tobacco, and baked earth. The palate is approachable and noted by blackberry coulis, violets, vanilla and baking spice, with consistent and fine-grained tannins. Inner quote mark (3/2021)
