2019 La Fiorita Just Arrived

Store Favorite! We got in 3 six packs, that is all that came to Missouri! 

Available at Kirkwood and online

2019 Fattoria la Fiorita Brunello di Montalcino...$54.99
Strawberry, raspberry and cherry aromas and flavors are beautifully displayed in this charming version, with loam, tobacco and herbs adding detail while the aftertaste goes on and on. Shows balance and formidable length. Best from 2026 through 2042. 2,660 cases made, 1,250 cases imported.
Rated 95/100 Wine Spectator
With cherrywood or cedar, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino has a savory, almost spicy side that follows garden herb, cola, dark cherry, plum and sweet cherry. The fruit is slightly baked or cooked with hints of road paving or smoky tar. This is a concentrated wine for sure, with fruit sourced from three sites: Collesorbo, Pian Bossolino and Giardinello. Production is 32,000 bottles. Drying tannins want a steak and polenta dinner.
Rated 93/100 Wine Advocate
