"If I had to bet on a 2008 Brunello that might surprise on the upside in a few years Fuligni would be near or at the top of my list." - Antonio Galloni
The 2008 vintage is where savvy Brunello buyers can find some amazing deals. On the heels of the highly regarded 2006's and 2007's, these wines were initially overlooked, but they have really come into their own with some time in the bottle.
Brunello is always better with some age, and boy is this 2008 really hitting its stride right now. From one of the most respected names in the region, the 2008 Fuligni is definitely "one of the clear highlights of the vintage" and we have it today for over 35% off!
An ideal candidate to drink as you wait on recent vintages to mature in the cellar, at this great price it's easy to pop the cork anytime. Because they made no Riserva in 2009, all the best juice has found its way into this bottling.
Approachable and youthfully charming now, this still has the requisite structure to evolve for another decade. Savory and aromatic, a pretty floral component accents spicy cherry and earth, leading into a gorgeous, long finish.
2008 is known as a 'pop and pour' vintage, one that does not need a ton of time in the cellar to enjoy. Those that know and love Fuligni will find all the qualities they love in this magical wine, minus the price tag. It’s truly rare see Fuligni under $40 so stock up on this one today! Cheers!
