Tasting Notes

The Wine Advocate's 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."

    Based upon its track record, we always expect this to be good but the 2016 is definitely La Fortuna's best to-date. The fruit is exceptional with rich black cherry and berry flavors that fill the palate and keep on going. This is truly a steal at $15 and a Sangiovese lover's delight.

    This is another wine that earned two stars from me. Made of 100% Sangiovese the nose is classic ripe cherries and strawberries and a hint of coco powder. On the palate of this full-bodied wine, you will find the fruit describe above with a touch of minerals with some tannin structure, which gives this wine a great back bone and very lush feel to the palate and has an incredible long finish. This will age, but it will be very hard not to drink this.
