    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      Beautifully balanced and classically spicy fragrance. The typical blackberry and sour cherry aromas are also found in the taste. Juicy and rich in extract, full and enveloping, with velvety tannins and plenty of stamina in the finale. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This has pure, dark cherry flavours with intense notes of mineral, heather and anise adding depth. The tannins are fine and powdery, while lively acidity carries the finish. This is an absolute pleasure to drink." Decanter

      "Good full red. Smoky aromas of flinty red cherry, violet and licorice. Juicy and gripping in the mouth; piercing but balanced acidity nicely lifts and extends the flinty red fruit flavors on the rising, clean aftertaste. Developed a hint of gaminess with aeration which was not much to my liking, and so I lowered my score slightly." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "Aromas of tar, dried cherry and lemon skin. Full body, with tangy acidity and firm tannins. Tight but beautiful. Give it a year or two to open." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016 (BIO)

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016 (BIO)

      When we found this winery by chance at the beginning of the 2000ies, we were impressed by the modesty and the purism of the Biliorsi family. This is still the case today, here they stay true to themselves and their philosophy, and in good years they bring as few as 10,000 bottles of a "somewhat different" Brunello into the cellar. This is also the case in 2016 - and the result is, as always, typical and not at all aimed at clumsy ingratiation. Deep dark ruby red, in the bouquet small black berries, cedar wood, forest floor and a fine nutty roasted aroma. At the palate then multilayered and powerful, with earthy-rustic nuances and a complex mixture of dark fruit, precious woods, a fine plum note and some chocolate. Very intensive, impulsive and long and so nothing at all for lovers of polished uniform wines. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The Fornacina 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a darkly saturated appearance and toasted aromas of roasted nut backed by dark blackberry fruit. Made with organic fruit, this Brunello is fermented in stainless steel and aged in large oak casks in a traditional and straightforward manner. Production in this vintage is 10,000 bottles. There is lot of intensity here, and the wine draws its power not only from the fruit, but also in large part from the oak aging. Indeed, its fruit-driven aromas share equal billing with campfire ash and smoked cedar or mahogany." Robert Parker

      "This is a ripe and full red with complex aromas of cedar, cloves, tobacco and dried mushrooms. Distinct, earthy quality underneath ripe plums and licorice. Layers of chocolatey tannins. Black truffles, too." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2012

      2012 was a very good year in Montalcino and the consortium awarded the maximum rating of 5 stars. The bouquet is wonderfully open with aromas of sour cherries and dark forest fruits, on the palate a delicate structure. Compact, well integrated tannin and an impressive finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Simone Bilorsi coaxes gorgeously pure Sangiovese from his organically cultivated vineyards. In years he deems good enough, the Riserva is made exclusively from his holdings in Castelnuovo dell'Abate and aged in Slavonian oak casks. The 2012 is savoury and woody, with nuances of tobacco and fennel lifting ripe cherry fruit. There's plenty of concentration on the palate, though slightly dry tannins need time to resolve. It finishes with lovely florality." Decanter

      "Very impressive deep-set dried cherry aromas with a spicy and cedary edge, as well as attractive sweet aged meats and dried flowers. Some peppery nuances, too. The palate has impressive power, draw and cut, The flavors ride deep and long, delivering terrific length." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      Fornacinas Riserva 2015 is a bold and powerful wine that makes a great first impression. The wine is never shy or reserved. It offers intensity on two levels: On the one hand, it offers a wonderfully firm structure with plenty of warmth and harmony. On the other hand, it convinces with textural richness and wonderful secondary aromas that come with three years of oak aging. The tannins will tolerate another one or two years of bottle ripening to become even softer and more relaxed. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Firmness and finesse with blackberry and black-cherry aromas and flavors. Some walnut and wet-leaf undertones. It’s medium-to full-bodied with fine, succulent tannins that follow through nicely." James Suckling

      "Balsam notes with cola, rosemary and lavender essence lift gently from the bouquet of the Fornacina 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. This wine is made with organically farmed fruit. As it opens in the glass, you get a clear picture of the dark fruit at its core and of the delicate limestone dustings that frame the bouquet. This wine draws its fruit from a five-hectare parcel with Alkaline soils rich with numerous mineral components. The complexity of the soils is reflected in the bouquet, and this warm vintage expression delivers ample structure, velvety tannins and lasting intensity." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersFornacinaTuscany | Montalcino
    Fornacina

    A record from 1922 proves that Roger Biliorsi informed a regulatory agency about the sale of a small quantity of wine. This proves that winegrowing in the Biliorsi family has deep roots in the past. After the small Fornacina winery outside Montalcino had initially produced simple table wines, Ruggero Biliorsi began to professionalise production at the beginning of the 1980s and to produce quality wines from then on. The first few hundred bottles of Brunello date back exactly to 1981. Six years later, Ruggero's sons Simon and Mauro took over the business on an equal footing. The two winegrowers are supported in their work by oenologist Attilio Pagli and agronomist Folco Giovanni Bencini. Both of them are strictly monitoring that the traditional rules for Brunello are strictly adhered to.

    Azienda Agricola Fornacina has a total vineyard area of only five hectares. Three hectares extend at an altitude of about 400 metres to the south and south-east in direct proximity to the estate, the remaining plots are located on the south side in Castelnuovo dell.'Abate. The planting density is usually 4,500 vines per hectare. Since 2004 the grapes have been grown organically.

    In addition to a Brunello - in excellent years it can also be a Brunello Riserva - Rosso and Grappe are also produced on the small country estate. In the meantime, the Brunello estate has long become a household name for lovers from all over the world. The wines are regarded as extremely authentic, cleanly vinified and still affordable for normal earners.

    The completely renovated modern wine cellar has two levels, one of which is seven metres below ground level. The winemaking, ageing and bottling areas are separated from the premises used for meetings, tasting and direct sales. To bring the Brunello to maturity, large barrels of Slovenian oak with a volume of 20 to 35 hectolitres are used. SUPERIORE.DE
