2015 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1441211 100 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The purity of fruit on the nose is perfection with cherries, crushed raspberries, mineral, pumice and citrus fruit. Dust, too. Full body. Powerful, chewy tannins. So long and muscular, yet polished and formed. Most structured Brunello I have ever had from here. A wine for decades. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Rose, violet, camphor, wild berry and aromatic herb aromas are front and center in this gorgeous red. It’s juicy, enveloping and delicious, doling out succulent black cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and baking spice alongside velvety tannins. Thanks to the estate’s vineyards north of Montalcino, it has freshness and mid-term staying power. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Fuligni's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is dark and alluring, pulling me closer to the glass with each swirl, as a mix of ripe black cherry, rosemary, smoke, and moist earth lift from the glass, with sweet florals and a bit of animal musk developing over time. On the palate, it glides across the senses like silk, with ripe dark red fruits paving the way for sweet spice, as saline-minerals slowly saturate in a display that was perfectly balanced and not missing a single step. The finish is long, showing the first notes of tannic heft, with dried red fruits and minerals. The 2015 Fuligni Brunello balances its beautifully ripe fruit with classic tannins and a truly gorgeous perfumed character. It’s sure to have a lot of fans, and as it youthfully closes up in the glass. I can imagine a long life ahead for it. (EG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Fuligni estate is located between the town of Montalcino and Torrenieri in the northeast. Its 10ha of vineyards reach up to 450 metres on rocky marls and are mostly east facing. This rather gentle, cooler exposition worked in the wine's favour in 2015. While full-bodied, it is adeptly proportioned and even demonstrates great precision, boasting sweet, dried herbs, coriander and leather atop plush red cherries. There is a stoniness underneath, with layers of clingy tannins and a sappy, appetising finish. (MM) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe and polished, delivering plum, black cherry, licorice, tar and leather flavors, backed by a solid structure and revealing fine balance overall. Lacks the complexity of the best 2015s, but impressive and long nonetheless. Best from 2022 through 2039. 5,500 cases made, 2,200 cases imported. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. Balsamic, sweet complex nose with hints of oatmeal. Supple, juicy and expressive on the palate with gorgeous, grainy tannins clinging to the fruit. Truly tangy and with a generous dose of long-lasting fruit on the finish. (WS) 17+/20 Inner quote mark (1/2020)

In this stupendous vintage, the 2015 Fuligni Brunello is amazing. The nose of this wine is warm and inviting, with waves of rose petal, wild cherry, and ripe plum. On the palate, there is a supple warmth that envelops your attention; and while the fruit is ever-present, a savory, umami-like complexity fills your mouth, followed by hints of leather, Tuscan brush, and porcini. The finish is powerful—the wine seems to bulk up, almost like it’s flexing its muscles, yet it still has lift on the back palate. An amazing wine with a long life ahead of it.
