Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG
100% Sangiovese. Fuligni Brunello Riserva shows remarkable elegance and complexity, and a beautiful bouquet of marasca cherries, tobacco, and mint, with a lovely, long finish.
“For Fuligni, terroir is the essence of great wines, and is the cultural legacy of generations of winegrowers who work a piece land to capture its best exposures and to perfect cultivation and aging techniques just as the Fulignis have done over the last century at their estate in Montalcino.”
