Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino 2013

$75.00

97 Points, Vinous — 96 Points, James Suckling

“This hauntingly beautiful wine showcases everything Brunello can be when made from an ultra-competent producer farming Sangiovese vines that grow in what is a real grand cru section of the much too large Brunello di Montalcino denomination.” -Ian D’Agata

 

Fuligni is one of the best producers of wine in Italy, let alone Brunello di Montalcino. In the ‘Grand cru’ part of Brunello as Ian D’Agata calls it, Fuligni’s execution of top-tier Sangiovese winemaking is consistently elite.  As with the strict Brunello guidelines, their Sangiovese is aged for four years, of which approximately two and a half are in wood.

With its elegant combination of fruit and spicy aromas, the Fuligni Brunello is, in any case, the result of carefully selected grapes coming from low yields per hectare and is not produced in years when the quality of the harvested grapes is not suitable to maintain the high standards of the estate. For this reason, every bottling you see is fantastic. But the 2013 takes that to a whole other level.

In the best year by far in Brunello since 2010, the 2013 vintage offered perfect conditions for winemakers and Fuligini delivered an absolute beauty. 96 points and a rave review from James Suckling, but that doesn’t do the wine the justice it deserves. No, if you want to see a real wine review, read the 97-point ode that Ian D’Agata wrote. It is awesome!

Luminous red. High-pitched aromas of sour red cherry, raspberry, rose, stainless steel, white pepper and minerals. Dense and silky in texture but displays great juiciness, clarity and floral lift; the lively but harmonious acidity really lifts and frames the bright red and mineral flavors. Totally saturates the palate and yet comes off as virtually weightless. This hauntingly beautiful wine showcases everything Brunello can be when made from an ultra-competent producer farming Sangiovese vines that grow in what is a real grand cru section of the much too large Brunello di Montalcino denomination.”

34% OFF and the Best Price in the U.S. if you add this wine to a full-case order.

A balanced and firm red with plum, light chocolate, walnut and spice character. Medium to full body and silky tannins. I love the flavorful finish. Drink in 2021
