Description

95 Points Wine Spectator -  This is fresh, evoking cherry, floral, black pepper, mineral, earth and tobacco aromas and flavors. The assertive tannins come into play by the long finish, yet this shows balance overall. Best from 2022 through 2037.B.S. 

93 Points Vinous - Bright red. Fresh, enticing aromas and flavors of strawberry, tea leaf and licorice are lifted by a violet topnote. Polished tannins and a harmonious acid spine provide support and very good cut to the long finish, which features a strong note of graphite. This easygoing, bright, floral wine is the best Brunello from La Fiorita in years.

92 Points James Suckling -  Aromas of black cherry and dried herbs follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold. 

92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -  La Fiorita's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows smooth balance and mild intensity, with good fruit definition along the way. This wine exhibits the firmness and focus of Sangiovese in this classic vintage. The oak notes are also in plain view. They impart extra layers of spice and tobacco. The wine ages in already-used tonneaux for two years and is fermented in conical oak vats. Those oak influences never fade too far into the background. Some 14,000 bottles were produced.
