Plenty of strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors, but it's refined and elegant with brightness and finesse. Polished and wonderfully harmonious. Really gorgeous. One of wines of the vintage. Drink or hold.

Dark cherry, plum, blood orange and exotic spices all lift from the glass. Aromatically intriguing and generous, the 2011 will be ready to give all it's got pretty early. Although the 2011 is not especially complex, it is sensual, racing and inviting, all qualities that are accentuated by silky tannins that give the wine its succulent, open-knit personality. The 2011 spent two and half years in a combination of tonneau and cask.

It's easy to drink the whole bottle, glass after glass. The warmer vintage has shaped soft and rich fruit flavors that are enduring and enticing. Spice, leather and tangy tobacco fill in the rear adding dimension and aromatic substance. The mouthfeel shows great textural richness and a sudden spot of bright acidity. This is an honest, upfront and utterly enjoyable Brunello. - Monica Larner

Delicate scents of pressed blue flower, sunbaked earth, red berry and dark spice emerge in the glass. The elegant, structured palate offers mature wild cherry, crushed blackberry, white pepper and licorice alongside a backbone of fine-grained tannins. A cinnamon note closes the finish. Give this a few more years to unwind then enjoy. - Kerin O’Keefe

A lifted, perfumed nose of cranberry, raspberry, red cola, mocha and a potpourri of dried spring flowers. The dusty earth notes so often associated with Italian Sangiovese are also present. A core of fresh, tart yet sweet, ripe red fruits - strawberries, raspberries, and pomegranate - forms the foundation of this Brunello, and a sun-kissed quality of dried violets and roses emanates from here. That quintessential dusty earth note is ever present yet subtle and reemerges in the soft, drying tannins on the finish. Open-knit, lifted, and expansive now, this Brunello will certainly evolve over the next 10 years - if you can wait that long to drink it!

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.
