Winemaker Notes

The wine has a ruby red color with a slight garnet hint. The nose expresses fresh and spicy notes with the aroma of red fruit and tobacco. The touch is harmonious silky and coherent with the scent. The finish is fragrant and savory.

Fattoria La Fiorita Winery Image
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.

Montalcino Wine

Tuscany, Italy

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
