La Fortuna Brunello di Montalcino 2013

Sangiovese Blends  |  Italy

JS93, WS92

An all-time First Bottle mega-classic, the wines of La Fortuna are on fire! This wildly excellent price, for wine so wickedly endowed with Sangiovese's power, is just amazing. Classic, rich and brimming with the warmth of the 2013 vintage, it's perfect right now.

About the Producer

La Fortuna began in 1907, with Angiolino Zannoni, Gioberto's great grandfather, growing seed crops and raising livestock. His son, Gino, followed suit, taking over in the 1950s, at a time when the economic landscape was changing dramatically and people were fleeing to take manufacturing jobs in the cities. Gino knew he wanted none of that, and so he bought the land his family was farming from the landlord. The entire estate is centered around their centuries old Tuscan farmhouse, where the family has lived for over a century.

93 James Suckling -
Aromas of blackberry and cherry with flowers. Smoky. Hot stone. Medium to full body, firm and fresh tannins and a delicious finish. Beautiful now but needs a year or two to soften.
92 Wine Spectator -
Starts out with cherry, iron and tobacco flavors, before firming up, with a solid structure. A kernel of fruit holds steady as this red unfolds on the lingering finish. Best from 2022 through 2036. 2,200 cases made.
