Pre-release offer: Fuligni – BRUNELLO di MONTALCINO 2008 & 2007 ‘Riserva’

by Ed H-B


For us, our customers and wine aficionados everywhere, Brunello di Montalcino represents some of the highest quality yet best value fine wine available in the world today.

As ever, the inimitable Fuligni house style of purity, lightness of touch and elegance, in no way lacks concentration or intensity of fruit.

Fuligni’s wines have reached international recognition for their purity of expression and beautiful balance. In our opinion these are simply the finest wines of Brunello, epitomising all that is great from the region.

Made from 100% Sangiovese as decreed by the DOCG rules of the region, these Brunelli are made to be laid down and have a long maturation period. Riserva is only made in the best vintages and from the best fruit parcels.

When Roberto recently dropped by our office to introduce these new releases a quiet calm of appreciation descended across the room. Even though we are fully aware of the sheer quality of the estate’s wines, they really are breathtaking to taste and any fine wine enthusiast, budding or experienced, should seriously consider putting some of these down for the future.

Fuligni, Riserva 2007 Brunello di Montalcino:

This is absolutely stunning and quite possibly their best Riserva yet. Completely seamless, very fine boned and elegant. Showing amazingly well now, but clearly with the structure and depth it will last another 15 years. Incredibly silky fine tannins. Bravo!

James Suckling states the ‘2007 Brunello di Montalcinos are Superlative Quality’, and that he is ‘incredibly impressed with the richness of the wines. They are wonderfully fruity with a purity of ripe Sangiovese that is seldom seen from the vineyards surrounding the hilltop town of Montalcino. The bright fruit in the wines overshadowed their firm tannins and fresh acidities, yet they remain agile with tension…it’s never been a better time to buy and drink Brunello.’

Fuligni 2008 Brunello di Montalcino:

Very open and approachable, but with all the breed usually associated with this estate. 2008 was a 4* year in Montalcino and therefore contains all the fruit normally destined for the Riserva.
