(From 2010 Vintage) 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.
High standards in the winery match those in the vineyard. Fermentation takes place under the severest temperature and quality control, followed by skin maceration for 15-20 days. The hallmark of Fuligni Brunello and Rosso (the latter, from the rocky and rewarding cru of Ginestreto) is their great complexity. Élevage takes place in Slavonian oak casks and in French barriques and tonneaux, effectively enhancing and fine-tuning the wines intrinsic nobility and depth.
