This is very oaky on the nose, with raw wood accenting the black cherry fruit. Additional time in the glass brings out more toasty notes and black, almost peppery spice. Dense and fruity on the palate with some bitterness on the short finish. This is a sexy wine with lots of make up over easy red fruit. Is a bit chunky today. The bitterness of the tannins becomes more apparent with air. 87pts

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.96R

but rather a wine that conquers through its sheer finesse. The wine spent 27 days on the skins. The volume and weight are influenced by the modern school

\ Fuligni\'s 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the stars of the vintage. Sweet floral notes weave through a core of expressive red fruit as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2006 shows incredible purity and finesse, most notably in its silky, polished tannins. This isn\'t a blockbuster, but rather a wine that conquers through its sheer finesse. The wine spent 27 days on the skins. The volume and weight are influenced by the modern school, everything else is traditional all the way. The 2006 is the first vintage in which the percentage of French oak has been dropped to 25%, which has allowed the purity of the fruit to shine through to a degree that I have seldom, if ever, seen here. Rain during June naturally lowered yields and may partly explain why Fuligni's 2006 is so phenomenal. Simply put, readers won\'t want to miss this superb Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.\ Antonio Galloni
