Tasting Notes

La Fiorita was started in 1992 by Roberto Cipresso, and two partners. Their first vineyard was ~0.5 hectare and produced only 1000 bottles.

In the years that followed, two vineyards were added – south-facing Poggio al Sole (4 ha) and southeast-facing Pian Bossolino (3.1 ha) – increasing production to 25,000 bottles of Rosso, normale and Riserva.

In 2011, Natalie Oliveros assumed ownership of the winery and provided an investment of capital allowing for a new cellar and state of the art winemaking equipment. A new vineyard was added in 2014 on the western side of Montalcino – Podere Giardinello - and Natalie orchestrated the shift towards organic viticulture for all vineyards, and certification was granted in 2019.  Construction of a new winemaking and cellaring facility began in early 2018 on the original site of the La Fiorita Estate, and was completed in time for the 2019 harvest. Now the La Fiorita team can preserve the authentic expression of each vineyard’s qualities independently from the others during fermentation using 16 concrete tanks.

The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino DOC is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, hand-harvested from the Poggio al Sole and Giardinello estate vineyards, plus some fruit purchased from managed sites. Fermentation in temperature-controlled, Slavonian oak casks, for about 18 days with only délestage (rack and return) employed during maceration. The wine was then aged for 10 months in French-oak Botte (37HL), and in bottle for 2 months before release. Only 15,000 bottles produced. Alc./vol. 14.0%. 

Our Tasting note: Complex aromas and flavours of wild raspberry, ripe black cherry, and plum with notes of dark chocolate, sweet tobacco, and crushed herbs. Dry, round, with integrated tannins, balancing acidity, and a long, evolving finish.

Pairings: It will complement medium- to full-bodied dishes, particularly grilled red meat (beef tenderloin or lamb), game, salumi, or classic pasta dishes with meat-based sauces.
