Cherry, plum, spice and tobacco flavors are the themes in this rich, grainy red, which is well-integrated, with a vibrant feel. Accents of earth and leather emerge on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. (BS)
The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark and savory wine with a generous bouquet of meaty aromas that peel back in thick layers. At its core is a healthy dose of black fruit, but background aromas of cured meat, grilled spice and smoked bacon give the wine a unique personality. This wine shows enthusiastic readiness were it to be paired with a succulent, fire-roasted steak. The mouthfeel revealed by this Brunello from Fuligni is surprisingly dense, thick and velvety. The wine shows attractive richness on both the nose and the palate. It is ready to drink in the near or medium-term. (ML)
Fuligni’s vineyards, 1,470 feet up Montalcino’s eastern slope, gave a wine with red-berry flavors that feel taut and precise despite the warm 2012 vintage. With exposure to air, notes of thyme and fennel seed emerge, along with a hint of cinnamon that warms the bright fruit flavors.
Good full red. Complex, penetrating aromas and flavors of red cherry, strawberry, minerals and violet, plus a complicating hint of cinnamon. Rich and dense but with a strong mineral underpinning giving this a very precise, lifted mouthfeel. Long and very clean on the vibrant finish. Outstanding, classic, refined Brunello. (ID) 93+
Forest floor, aromatic herb, dark spice and eucalyptus aromas come together with a floral twist. Bright and elegant, the palate shows succulent wild cherry, white pepper, star anise and chopped mint flavors. With its taut, fine-grained tannins and firm acidity, it needs time to unwind and fully develop. Drink 2022–2032. *Cellar Selection* (KO)
Extremely floral with rose-petal and cherry character. Walnut and mushroom undertones. Medium to full body, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Citrus-rind undertones. Delicious, solid and harmonious wine. Drink or hold.
