About The Producer
This is another phenomenal Fortuna Terrae that just rolls across the palate with amazingly complex and beautiful fruit. Full body yet tight and refined. Berry, light meat, mushroom and truffle character. Made from organically grown grapes. Love now.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Adrianna Vineyard Fortuna Terrae is from slightly deeper soils of the Adrianna vineyard in Gualtallary at 1,340 meters in altitude, and it is the "less" expensive of the three Adrianna bottlings. All of these wines ferment in 225- and 500-liter oak barrels and are aged in French barrels for 24 months. This is the one with more exuberant and floral aromas, open and showy within the austere style of the vineyard and the year. This is also the more open of the three. The palate reveals a silky texture with very fine tannins and great freshness. 6,000 bottles produced. it was bottled in July 2016.
A big and rich-tasting red, balanced and sumptuous, with concentrated dark currant, olive and dried blackberry flavors. Chocolate and Asian spice notes fill the powerful finish, which features accents of black licorice. Drink now through 2024. 500 cases made.
