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.
