Winemaker's Notes

Only made in the finest years, the Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows remarkable elegance and complexity, and a beautiful bouquet of marasca cherries, tobacco and mint, with a lovely, long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Wonderfully perfumed, with rose, blackberry and a hint of wet earth. Full-bodied, with layers of silky tannins and a long, long finish. Structured. Hard not to drink now, but will be even better with a little more bottle age."
97 Points

"Bright, dark ruby-red. A v ibrant Brunello with crisp, mineral-tinged aromas of violet, sour red cherry, pipe tobacco and licorice, all lifted by a note of citrussy white pepper. Nicely delineated and sweet on the palate, with strong raspberry and hazelnut notes dominating. This subtle and deceptively concentrated wine finishes with incredibly fine-grained tannins and outstanding length. One of the best and most refined Riservas of the vintage."
94 Points

"Fuligni's 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva reveals a focused, poised personality with sweet raspberries, crushed flowers and spices that emerge from the glass. The tannins are sweet and polished, yet this classically built, structured Brunello will require some patience."

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
