Tasting Notes

Monica Larner provides the following update on La Fortuna: "Today, the estate counts 18 hectares of vines, of which 12 hectares are located in the northern area of the appellation. Another six hectares are located in the Castelnuovo dell'Abate sub zone. Wines are made from a blend of fruit from these two sites. The northern vineyard is found at 250 to 300 meters above sea level with limestone clay soils and marine fossils. The other parcel shows warmer average temperatures and soils mixed with Galestro stones. Angelo Zannoni says La Fortuna recently acquired an additional two hectares of Brunello from a neighbor. This newly purchased plot is called La Campana."

    Spices, flowers, and chocolate covered cherries! Just a delicious Italian red wine to indulge with a plate of pasta.

    Most of the 2015 “Rosso’s have come and gone by now, but we save a few of our favorites to carry us into 2018.Woo-hoo! La Fortuna's is back in town! Ever time I raise a glass of this wine to my lips; it brings me back to Montaclino. Why? because there is so much Montaclino in the glass. This Rosso reveals perfumed ripe fruit of plum, cassis and kirsch, some leather and cassis, mid- pallet and earthiness that meld into ripe strawberries, spices and minerals on the long finish. ( Warning !!! this will sell out quickly and yes, I am going to put some down).
