Winery Information

The Fuligni Estate spreads over approximately one hundred fully cultivated hectares of land in an almost continual strip on the eastern side of Montalcino where, historically, the most authentic production of Brunello emerged. The wines, covering fourteen hectares, are primarily located in Cottimelli, at altitudes varying from 380 to 450 metres above sea level.
Here, the land, which predominantly faces north-east, belongs entirely to the Eocene Santa Fiora (marl) geological formation with a predominantly rocky terrain. Other vineyards specifically destined for the production of Rosso di Montalcino and IGT wines are located east, around Villa San Giovanni a Semini, which dates back to the 17th century and is today an agriturismo.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Vinous

"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine that brings together the richness of the vintage and the house's continuing move to a more traditional style. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint, spices and anise are woven together beautifully in this large-scaled, generous wine. The wine gains volume and depth in the glass as the 2flavors built to a huge crescendo. The 2007 was aged exclusively in cask. This is a great showing from Fuligni." (Drink between 2015-2027) - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2012)

95 Points - James Suckling

"Black cherry and black tea aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a succulent finish. Wonderful combination of bright acidity and savory fruit. Will age wonderfully." - James Suckling (Dec 2012)

93 Points - Wine Spectator

"A fresh, sleek version, boasting floral, cherry, currant, licorice and spice aromas and flavors. A compelling mix of elegance and intensity, with a fine aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2014 through 2026. 2,500 cases made." - Bruce Sanderson (Aug 2012)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"Here's a youthful expression of Sangiovese Grosso in which the grape's trademark acidity and fruity brightness shine through. Cherry, white almond, dried raspberry and rum cake notes present a soft, chewy feel in the mouth, although the overall structure is solid." - (May 2012)
