2004 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

SKU #1071248 98 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Fuligni is one of those Montalcino estates that consistently delivers. Light-touch winemaking and a diverse array of sensibly farmed, disparate and thus diverse vineyards are the building blocks. This is juicy, tangy and terribly easy to devour - and easily underestimated. (MW) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The flowers and berry character shows through beautifully here. Full-bodied, with rich tannins and a bright acidity. Refined and polished. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (6/2013)

96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva reveals gorgeous clarity, precision and richness in a generous, enveloping style. The fruit remains incredibly pure and almost primary at this stage, suggesting the wine has many years of fine drinking ahead of it. Deceptively medium in body, Fuligni’s Riserva has plenty of tannic clout to back up the sexy, opulent fruit. A layered, impeccable finish rounds out this utterly brilliant Riserva. Readers will not want to miss this fabulous Brunello from Fuligni. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Readers who own Fuligni's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva are going to be thrilled, as the wine is developing beautifully in bottle. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, lavender, incense and sage are infused throughout. Dark, fleshy and super-expressive, the 2004 Riserva hits all the right notes. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of blueberry and blackberry, with hints of lilac. Full and velvety, with powerful chewy tannins, but so well-defined and polished. Very long and intense, with bright acidity. Needs time to come together. (JS) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Opened four hours before tasting. Bright rich ruby. Scented and serious. Dense Sangiovese fruit – very conscious of its own stateliness. Still very youthful. Savoury, dry and dense. Serious! 18/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Compared to past vintages, this Riserva embodies a lighter, more elegant style. Aromas are delivered in a direct and vertical manner and include cherry, red currant, chocolate and shadings of exotic spice. In the mouth, this wine shows enormous intensity, but also harmony and balance. Inner quote mark (10/2010)
