This 100% Sangiovese Grosso is aged partly in Slavonian oak vats of about of French oak, for more than 3 years, followed by about one year in the bottle before release. Bursting at the seams with plum and cherry fruit sustained by firm, full structure and polished tannins.
With its elegant combination of fruit and spicy aromas, the Fuligni Brunello is the result of carefully selected grapes coming from low yields per hectare and is not produced in years when the quality of the harvested grapes is not suitable to maintain the high standards of the estate.
"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine that brings together the richness of the vintage and the house’s continuing move to a more traditional style. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint, spices and anise are woven together beautifully in this large-scaled, generous wine. The wine gains volume and depth in the glass as the flavors built to a huge crescendo. The 2007 was aged exclusively in cask. This is a great showing from Fuligni. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027."
The Wine Advocate
"Black cherry and black tea aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a succulent finish. Wonderful combination of bright acidity and savory fruit. Will age wonderfully."
"A fresh, sleek version, boasting floral, cherry, currant, licorice and spice aromas and flavors. A compelling mix of elegance and intensity, with a fine aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2014 through 2026."
"Medium red. Reticent aromas of medicinal red cherry, redcurrant, dried flowers and mint. Broad, fresh and laid-back, with lovely energy for the vintage. Spicy red berry, mint and licorice flavors are quite dry in a positive way. Not particularly open today but the broad finish shows a light touch and a fine dusting of tannins. I'd give this at least a few years before pulling the cork. 92(+?) points "
