Brunello di Montalcino 2017
The Fuligni 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine, and it shines a much-deserved spotlight on one of the most consistent estates in Montalcino. It is bright and luminous with a dark ruby shine. The bouquet reveals deeply layered tones of red cherry, wild berry, rose, earth and candied violets. Give the wine an extra twirl or two, and you get some rosemary and lavender. Soft dusty minerals and limestone also appear.
Fuligni is an estate winery in Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy, founded in 1923 by the Fuligni family, of ancient Venetian and English origin. In Montalcino they acquired the palace (main building) and grounds which they still manage today. 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.
