Interesting aromas of dried berries with cherries and watermelon. Full body, with integrated, chewy and polished tannins. Tangy finish. Pretty citrus undertones here. Drink or hold.
The clarity of fruit and balance are
impressive with black cherry and
orange peel coming through in a
subtle and focused way. It’s fullbodied
and tight with pretty and
well-crafted tannins and a citrus and
sandalwood aftertaste. Give it a few
years to fully open. Try after 2023.
A very chewy, tannic wine with
some austerity. It’s full-bodied and
very tight with a solid center palate
of fruit, yet a reserve of tannins on
the finish. This really needs bottle
time to soften. Try after 2025.
The La Fortuna 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva opens to a momentof sweetness, a tiny interval that is quickly followed by spice, balsamherb and dried cherry. That sweetness disappears after the second sipor two, and the savory components of the wine—the spice, the smokeand the earthy notes—begin to take over. This wine spreads over thepalate with slow and steady consistency. This is a 7,000-bottle releasemade from a selection of fruit from the estate's 18 hectares of vines.

firm tannin core and finishes with

This ripe red delivers cherry, plum, raspberry and floral notes on a rich, dense texture. Bright, with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Shows more muscle than finesse. Best from 2015 through 2030.
The La Fortuna 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a wine of prettySangiovese purity. This Riserva (with 9,000 bottles produced) shows adarkly saturated color with plump and intense aromas of wild cherry,crushed flowers, fresh plums, spice and ferrous earth. Balsam herb androsemary-like aromas round off the finish. There is great freshness,some oak tannins, a drying finish and lots of rich fruit fiber. This is aterrific wine from La Fortuna (although I need to point out the high15.5% alcohol).
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows the radiance of the vintage with its sweetly spiced cherry/berry fruits, hints of mint and dusting of cedar. It's silky and expressive on the palate, leaning toward ripeness with a black fruit profile, yet plesant and balanced. The structure here is very subtle, so much so that you'd be hard-pressed to recognize this as a young Riserva. Hints of licorice and dark florals linger on the remarkably fresh finish.
