Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG is a selection, deriving exclusively from the best bunch of Sangiovese grapes, carefully selected in the vineyard in order to allow La Fortuna to create a very high-quality product. A powerful wine with a high structure and concentration, intense color tending to burgundy red, a typical intense fragrance with a dry, harmonious, tannic and persistent taste. Pairs well with a variety of foods such as veal or lamb chops, lasagna bolognese, matured cheese.
James Suckling: 97
JS: "Fascinating aromas of dried flowers, sandalwood, cedar and plums. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. Gloriously complex and savory. Dusty texture. Just makes you want to drink it".
Wine Spectator: 95
WS: "A touch of new oak adds spice to the mix in this intense red. Cherry, strawberry, floral and mineral flavors pick up leather, tobacco and tea accents as this culminates on the lingering, spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2032."
Wine Enthusiast: 93
WE: "Toasted oak, coffee, scorched earth, baked plum and a whisper of exotic spice lead the way. The chewy, full-bodied palate offers mature black cherry, raspberry compote, anise and espresso alongside fresh acidity and fine-grained tannins that lend restraint and finesse."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 92
RP: "The La Fortuna 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a balanced and forthcoming wine that offers a bright core of berry fruit that is evenly offset by spicy notes of allspice and cardamom seed. The wine boasts a great sense of balance throughout with savory tones of tobacco and cured meat that underline its recent aging evolution. This Riserva should promise a solid ten-year drinking window"

5 of 5 A Fortunate Pour October 14, 2016
Reviewer: Mark Bergeron from Chicago, IL United States  
After drinking and enjoying the non-rirserva release with delight, I was hesitant to spring for the riserva edition.  Throwing caution to the wind and ordering a few bottles, my fiancee and I were curious to open a bottle of such a boutique wine, saving the others for years down the road.  

We put out a caprese, cured meat and aged cheese spread and went at it - the wine being the featured item at the meal.  The wine is young and wow, it already delivers;  from the moment the wine hits your mouth to its finish which lasts for ages, complex and delicious.  The price is not inexpensive, but it doesn't get much better than this.  Looking forward to 2021 and 2026 with great anticipation ...
