E. Fuligni:
The Fuligni Estate spreads over approximately one hundred fully-cultivated hectares of land in an almost continual strip on the eastern side of Montalcino where, historically, the most authentic production of Brunello emerged.

The Fuligni Estate spreads over approximately one hundred fully-cultivated hectares of land in an almost continual strip on the eastern side of Montalcino where, historically, the most authentic production of Brunello emerged. The vines, which extend over ten hectares, are primarily located at Cottimelli at altitudes varying from 380 to 450 meters above sea level. Here, the land, which predominantly faces east, belongs entirely to the Santa Fiora (marl) geological formation of Eocene origin and is made up of a prevalently rocky terrain. Read less

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

"\ 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

seen here. Rain during June naturally lowered yields and may partly explain why Fuligni's 2006 is so phenomenal. Simply put
