Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Tuscany, Italy 2008

$54.99

This is a balanced wine with dried berry and prune character with hints of cedar. Full body, with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Delicious and flavorful. Lovely now. Absolutely delicious.

One of the clear highlights of the vintage, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino emerges from the glass with black cherries, violets, cloves, menthol, licorice and tar. The 2008 stands out for its impeccable balance and layered, highly expressive personality. A translucent, mid-weight, silky finish is totally striking. Once again, Fuligni made one of the more refined wines of the village. In 2008 there is no Riserva. All the best of the lots made it into the straight bottling. If I had to bet on a 2008 Brunello that might surprise on the upside in a few years Fuligni would be near or at the top of my list.

Sweet cherry, raspberry and licorice, plus a savory note, match up against dense tannins in this compact, tightly wound red, which remains fresh on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2030.

90 points, Wine Spectator (Jun 2013)

Fuligni delivers a bright and sharp Brunello with medium build and tight forest berry aromas. The acidity leaves your mouth as clean as a whistle, and the wine imparts lingering tones of chopped mint, cola and dried ginger on the close.

89 points, Wine Enthusiast (May 2013)

Bright red. Clean aromas of strawberry, flint and underbrush. Bright and lively in the mouth, with modest nuance to the flavors of red berries, flowers and herbs. Finishes with spicy tannins and good acid lift but only moderate concentration and length. I have always been a huge fan of Fuligni's rather understated style of Brunello, but this 2008 is almost too delicate and simple. Perhaps some bottle age will help it put on flesh; in that case my score will look ungenerous.
