Description

100 points James Suckling
"This has a crazy nose of white truffles, wild berries, cherry blossoms, porcini mushrooms, earth, white pepper, sage, blueberries, cocoa and seashells. Full-bodied with such elegance and subtle power. Layered. Very fine, seamless tannins. Keeps going."

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Fuligni gives us a truly special expression from this sunny and warm vintage. What I notice first in the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is the elegance of the aromas and those dusty, almost salty mineral notes of crushed limestone that frame the delicate fruit packed tight within. There are other distinctive aromas here, such as balsam herb, dried mint and powdered licorice root that add more layers to the bouquet. That layering continues to the palate where the wine excels on all fronts—balanced concentration, structure and freshness. This is a unique creation and a very precious wine. It is one of the stand outs of the year."

98 points Falstaff
"Rich ruby, slightly light rim. Compact nose with notes of blackberry, dark forest raspberry and lots of cloves. On the palate full-bodied and compact, presents itself with densely meshed tannin, pithy, in between again and again fine texture, dark fruit, on the finish very weighty."

Vinous Reverie Notes
Fugligni’s Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a classic interpretation of the time-honored wine, made from pure Sangiovese grapes, grown exclusively from the estate’s oldest vineyards. The vines are close to thirty years old, with excellent exposure and stony tuffaceous soil dating back to the Eocene epoch. The grapes are harvested in early fall, and macerate for about eighteen days in stainless steel, where the wine continues to age for five more months. It then spends thirty-six months in Slavonian oak barrels and six months in bottle before release. Tasting Notes: This masterpiece of a wine features a generous and vast aromatic profile that ranges from black cherry, to orange, ginger and rhubarb. The wine is extremely cellarable, even decades, if stored properly.
