Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
 
The nose is dark cherry, yet intertwined with earth, Tuscan herbs, and hints of fresh leather in a relaxed flow from the glass. On the palate it is the texture that grabs your attention, it isn’t dense but energetic, fruit …the fruit in this vintage is hard to explain, it tastes less fruity and by that I mean it is more complex, less simple, not just sweet and squishy, it is more developed, nuanced--I hesitate to use the word layered, because it seems too simple, but it is enchanting. The wine has tannic structure that is evident but is in the background as the acidic balance lengthens and lengthens the finish. Such balance and power yet so effortless, the wine is a pleasure to drink now, yet the greatness will be down the road another 5-10 years. The Best La Fortuna Brunello ever.

"Tobacco and spice aromas give way to sweet, juicy cherry, raspberry and mineral in this elegant, well-defined red. The tannins are solid yet balanced, and the finish just keeps coming with sweet fruit and spice notes. Best from 2016 through 2032", Wine Spectator 95 Points.

96 points James Suckling

 Aromas of wet earth, meat and dried fruits. Some nuts and spices. Complex. Full body, with super fine tannins and fabulous intensity and richness. Dried cherry and candied citrus fruit. Fabulous finish. You want to drink this now. But shows superb finesse and intensity. Why wait?  (12/2014)
