This is a balanced wine with dried berry and prune character with hints of cedar. Full body, with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Delicious and flavorful. Lovely now. Absolutely delicious.

The 2008 stands out for its impeccable balance and layered, highly expressive personality. A translucent, mid-weight, silky finish is totally striking. Once again, Fuligni made one of the more refined wines of the village. In 2008 there is no Riserva. All the best of the lots made it into the straight bottling. 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.

Sweet cherry, raspberry and licorice, plus a savory note, match up against dense tannins in this compact, tightly wound red, which remains fresh on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2030. –BS

Bright, crimson red at the core and towards the rim. This vintage of Fuligni Brunello is showing beautiful notes of strawberry, cherry and roasted earth tones on the nose, followed closely by dried spices and just a hint of flowers. The medium-bodied palate displays wonderful balance leading to a beautiful finish that stays on the palate for at least 45 seconds. There was no Riserva made in 2008, so this has all the best plots and it shows in the wine. Drink now-2025+.

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.
