2010 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

TuscanyRedHighly RecommendInternationalPrivate Cellar

$ 580.00 AUD

1

Fuligni’s 25 acres of vines face east-southeast on stony slopes just to the north of the town of Montalcino. Maria Flora Fuligni and her nephew, Roberto, make a Riserva in top vintages, selecting barrels primarily from their older-vine plots. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a wine that shows immense harmony and inner poise. The powerful vintage is elegantly tempered in this expression thanks to the flowing and musical nature of the aromatic presentation.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Cool floral notes and a hint of eucalyptus, and unfolds with layers of fresh cherry and baking spices. The flavors wash over smooth tannins, gaining intensity as the wine sits in the glass, picking up complex notes of savory herbs, orange peel and tobacco. Poised and elegant, it will gain further complexity with a few more years in the cellar.

The Grape

Sangiovese

Sangiovese is a Tuscan red grape variety that has become the most planted and famous variety in Italy. You may know this variety by a few other names like Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Montefalco Rosso or Carmignano, but rest assured it's all the same grape, but it may grow in different regions. Sangiovese is made for food and shows with aromas and flavours of cherry, red berries, roasted tomato, balsamic, Italian herbs, coffee and cured meats, backed by cutting acidity and a good grip of tannins. The best examples come from Montalcino (Brunello di Montalcino) and can age decades!
