“From vineyards near those of Altesino, this is linear and tightly wound, yet also pure, packed with cherry, strawberry, floral and mineral notes. Bright and juicy, with a long, detailed aftertaste that pulls all the elements together. 350 cases imported.” - Wine Spectator (10/18)

“There's a very complex and fresh nose with elegant red cherries, spices and light herbal nuances. Smells very fresh. The palate has beautiful focus and depth with effortless rich dark and red cherries cast amid perfectly proportioned silk-smooth tannins. Long and so focused, the finish is superb. Try from 2022.” - James Suckling (12/18)

BACKGROUND
Fuligni was founded in 1923 by the Viscounts Fuligni, an ancient Venetian family who moved to Tuscany around 1770. For Fuligni, terroir is the essence of great wines as well as the cultural legacy of generations of winegrowers who work the land to capture its best exposures and to perfect cultivation and aging techniques. Everything from vineyard management to grape selection focuses on showcasing the sense of place. Grapes are vinified separately according to cru, in a classically inspired international style characterized by a strong backbone of acidity and smooth, polished tannins. All of Fuligni’s wines are consistently judged among Tuscany’s finest. The wines are aged in a restored convent, which was transformed into a barrique cellar, tasting rooms and guest quarters. The former convent’s cool, cloistered tranquility supplies ideal conditions for their élevage. The property covers approximately 247 acres east of Montalcino, historically the home to the most classic of Brunellos.
