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.

The bitterness of the tannins becomes more apparent with air. 87pts

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.

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

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%
