Robert Parker (95)

A special 3,200-bottle release culled from a selection of Sangiovese from their Pian Bossolino and Poggio al Sole plots, the La Fiorita 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Fiore di No is a very convincing wine that offers much more depth and complexity than the estate's classic Brunello. The wine opens to dark fruit, spice and camphor ash and then shows a very complete, wide-brush-stroke approach to the grape. You get the dark primary fruit, the depth and the length on the mouthfeel.

James Suckling (95)

The cherry, black-olive and dried-strawberry aromas are so attractive. Hints of cinnamon and licorice. Full-bodied, round and rich with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. Extremely flavorful and rich.

Winespectator (94)

This ripe red is balanced, with cherry, plum, berry and floral notes showing nuances of black pepper, iron, earth and tobacco. Firm, dense and fresh, featuring a long aftertaste of fruit, spice and tobacco.

Decanter (93)

A top bottling from the estate, blended from select fruit from Pian Bossolino, at 360m, and Poggio al Sole, at 180m (for the 2016, fruit from Giardinello was also added). It has a delicious, ripe, violet-tinged wild strawberry scent followed in the mouth by a soft, pillowy texture and fine-grained tannins. The acidity is pronounced, emphasising the elegance of this wine. There's a waft of wild herbs and sweet milk chocolate, joined on the finish by boozy strawberry and minty freshness.

Vinous (95)

Deep red. Captivating aromas of red cherry, strawberry, sweet pipe tobacco, and flint. Impressively built, multifaceted and layered, this boasts very pure and round flavors similar to the aromas. The finish is long and dense, and features polished tannins and a suave texture. Knockout Brunello, probably the best I have had from La Fiorita in a very long time, and likely ever. Noticeably less floral than the 2015 classico Brunello from this estate but more complex and much deeper. Made with grapes taken from the best part of the Pian Bossolino and Poggio al Sole vineyards. The NO on the label stands for Natalie Oliveros, the estate owner; a real knockout, this wine is only made in the best vintages.
