91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Sweet cherry flavors are framed by licorice, tobacco and spice notes in this smooth red. Firms up enough on the finish to warrant a year or two of aging, but this should find equilibrium soon. Best from 2017 through 2026. 1,500 cases made." -BS, 6/15/16

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"La Fiorita has crafted an elegant and feminine wine this vintage. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino opens to delicate tones of wild berry, wet earth and dried rose petal. It delivers these aromas with a soft touch and lasting intensity. These ethereal aromas glide by the senses with smooth transitions. The wine leaves an equally graceful impression in the mouth. This Brunello definitely benefits from a few hours of air before serving, but it can also be served in the near or medium term." -ML, 3/3/16

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Tilled earth, ripe dark-skinned berry, leather and menthol aromas show this wine's Sangiovese pedigree. The robust, concentrated palate doles out crushed black cherry, raspberry jam, cinnamon, licorice and the warmth of evident alcohol—the latter a common characteristic of this hot vintage. Firm, ripe tannins provide the framework. Drink 2017–2021." -KO, 5/1/16
