It’s ripe and generous yet also perfectly balanced, blending wild berry fruit with salty minerals, as zesty acids keep its energy high. There’s a bit of a tannic tug here, but it never gets in the way of this truly enjoyable Rosso; instead it just punctuates the expression perfectly. It will be hard to keep your hands off, but another year in bottle may bring out further depths. -- Eric Guido

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.
