Has a wonderful nose of roses strawberries and sandalwood. Full-bodied with fine tannins and an aftertaste of berry cedar and light coffee bean. Caresses every inch of your palate. Very fine yet chewy. Needs time still... Has a wonderful nose of roses strawberries and sandalwood. Full-bodied with fine tannins and an aftertaste of berry cedar and light coffee bean.

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply awesome in the way it marries a gorgeous expression of ripe dark fruit and a classic sense of structure. A rich enveloping wine it flows onto the palate with masses of black cherries minerals spices tar new leather and smoke. This is an exceptionally well-balanced and finessed Brunello full of character. The tannins remain rather firm but there is enough sheer density of fruit that opening a bottle on the young side is still likely to be rewarding. Simply put Fuligni's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Label

Fuligni Brunello is the result of carefully selected grapes coming from low yields per hectare. It is not produced in years when the quality of the harvested grapes is not suitable to maintain the high standards of the estate. It is aged for four years, of which approximately two and a half are in wood.

Fuligni’s regular Brunello di Montalcino–with its elegant combination of fruit and spicy aromas–can age, but is designed for early drinking.

Winery

Fuligni

Fuligni is a family-owned estate on the eastern side of Montalcino. The vines, which extend over ten hectares, are primarily located at Cottimelli with altitudes varying from 1,250 to 1,500 feet. Average age of the vines is about twelve years with some dating back more than thirty years. The estate’s four vineyards are planted with Sangiovese, complemented by a small portion of Merlot.

The Fuligni range consists of the regular Brunello, a Brunello Riserva, a Rosso (Ginestreto), and an IGT Toscana made from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot.
