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.
"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."
"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."
International Wine Cellar
"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."
