TASTING NOTES

A textbook expression of the highly floral and elegant side of Brunello along with menthol, ripe dark-skinned fruit, new leather and sandalwood. Quite open and expressive, with the structure to enable a long-aged life - but equally stunning right now with a decant.

Aged 2 years in large botte, then 2 more in the bottle before being released, they are the DNA behind La Fiorita.

From its foundation in the early nineties,  La Fiorita Estate has always sought to perfect the longevity and aromatic complexity of its Brunello to illustrate the magical harmony between the diverse terroirs (Tufo/clay, galestro and sandy clay), climate and Sangiovese grape - the Star of Montalcino.

Since her arrival in 2011, Natalie Oliveros has moved the Estate to an organic certification. Together with her business partner Louis Camilleri they acquired additional vineyards and built a Cantina combining sharp architecture with the proper tools to vinify and age her Brunello.


The two-level gravity-fed cantina was completed for the 2019 harvest and is now cementing the new foundation for La Fiorita’s exciting future and the generations to come. From viticulture to winemaking, there are no compromises or shortcuts to ensure the purest translation from soil to bottle.
