Aged by regulations for four years, of which approximately two and a half are in wood, Fuligni's regular Brunello di Montalcino also has optimal lasting characteristics but is destined for more immediate drinking. 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.

Wine SpectatorHas a wonderful nose of roses, strawberries and sandalwood. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and an aftertaste of berry, cedar and light coffee bean. Caresses every inch of your palate. Very fine, yet chewy. Needs time still. Best after 2010.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply awesome in the way it marries a gorgeous expression of ripe, dark fruit and a classic sense of structure. A rich, enveloping wine, it flows onto the palate with masses of black cherries, minerals, spices, tar, new leather and smoke. This is an exceptionally well-balanced and finessed Brunello full of character. The tannins remain rather firm but there is enough sheer density of fruit that opening a bottle on the young side is still likely to be rewarding. Simply put, Fuligni's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Wine EnthusiastYear after year, Fuligni delivers some of the most attractive and richly complex wines from Montalcino. This year's interpretation, however, seems to put more emphasis on territory-driven notes of mineral and earth. You'll also recognize bright blueberry and pristine cherry notes that promise a long aging future. Drink now through 2015.
