Very perfumed aromas of ripe fruit such as strawberries and blackberries. Turns to flowers and incense. Full-bodied with fine tannins and a bright citrus aftertaste and ultra-clean fruit. The purity and focus of the wine... Very perfumed aromas of ripe fruit such as strawberries and blackberries. Turns to flowers and incense. Full-bodied with fine tannins and a bright citrus aftertaste and ultra-clean fruit. The purity and focus of the wine is spellbinding. Better in 2015.

Bright red. Terrific floral lift to the ripe aromas of red fruits and spices. Perfumed and penetrating in the mouth with outstanding energy and thrust to the spicy cherry and redcurrant flavors. No excess weight here! ... Bright red. Terrific floral lift to the ripe aromas of red fruits and spices. Perfumed and penetrating in the mouth with outstanding energy and thrust to the spicy cherry and redcurrant flavors. No excess weight here! Most impressive today on the very long fine-grained finish which features a saline nuance suave tannins and superb palate-cleansing mineral grip. Balanced from day one but quite dense and tightly coiled: I'd hold my bottles for at least four or five years before pulling the cork. This outstanding riserva should be long-lived. 94+

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.
