    Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2015

    It is said that every now and then there are Brunello Riserve that come across as drying and rather fruitless due to the longer barrel ageing. With the Riserve from Fuligni, at the latest, this prejudice should be completely dispelled. What comes here in the best vintages from selected barrels of the vintage is the complete opposite. The 2015 Riserva shows a beautiful tertiary intensity with wild berries and plums followed by balsamic herbs, liquorice, grilled herbs and spices. We are thrilled by the sheer lushness and richness of this wine, which remains pleasantly medium-bodied all the while producing plenty of elegance and sufficient power on the other side. This Riserva never feels too heavy or flat, but convinces with disciplined energy and vitality. It rises with each subsequent glass into a perfectly matched world of modernity and tradition that is unparalleled in its vinified form. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Rich ruby-garnet, slightly lightening rim. Compact nose with notes of blackberry, dark forest raspberry and lots of cloves. On the palate sturdy and compact, presents itself with tightly woven tannin, pithy, in between always fine melting, dark fruit, very weighty on the final." Falstaff

    "It's hard to put down a glass of the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. This youthfully restrained yet remarkably pretty wine trades power for undeniable elegance and refinement. It's dark and moody at times, bright and focused on radiant fruits at others. Layer after layer of crushed black cherry, woodland herbs, autumnal spice, mint leaf, cedar box and earth resonate in the glass. Its silky textures coat all that they touch in a mix of dark red berries and salty minerals, turning dry and structured toward the close under an air of inner florals and earth tones. It will be some time before the 2015 is ready, but I hope to be able to revisit this when it is. Tasted twice with consistent results." Vinous

    "This Brunello offers dark fruit flavors of black currant, blackberry, violet and iron. A steely line of tannins adds support and the supple texture ties it all together. Classy and complex, finishes with accents of tobacco and spice." Wine Spectator

    "Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, menthol and star anise form the nose of this full-bodied red. Combining structure and finesse, the palate delivers raspberry, licorice and vanilla before a coffee finish. A backbone of firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity keep it well balanced." Wine Enthusiast

    "Fuligni's Riserva embodies the spirit of its designation. Despite long ageing in large oak casks, it demands more time in bottle and should age gracefully for many years. It comes from the estate's original Podere Cottimelli site in Montalcino's northeast. Earthy chestnut and wet soil make way for hints of liquorice, lilac and allspice. Broad and expansive, it starts off with velvety tannins that build to a powdery mass, yet there's a lovely perfume that lifts the palate along with saline, stony nuances and citrussy acidity to finish." Decanter

    "Fuligni gives us a truly special expression from this sunny and warm vintage. What I notice first in the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is the elegance of the aromas and those dusty, almost salty mineral notes of crushed limestone that frame the delicate fruit packed tight within. There are other distinctive aromas here, such as balsam herb, dried mint and powdered licorice root that add more layers to the bouquet. That layering continues to the palate where the wine excels on all fronts-balanced concentration, structure and freshness. This is a unique creation and a very precious wine. It is one of the stand outs of the year." Robert Parker

    "A tight, linear red with plums, chocolate and walnuts and some forest-floor and porcini mushroom undertones. Complex and aromatic. Full-bodied with dense, chewy tannins that are intense and powerful. Flavorful and long. Opulent." James Suckling
