Fugligni’s Brunello is an elegant fusion of fruit and spices, coming from a careful selection of low-yielding vines, and is only made in the best vintages. The wine matures for four years, spending two and a half (sometimes three) in wood. The results are stupendous -- yielding one of among most complex, compelling and age worthy wines from the region.
The Fuligni Estate is perched on the eastern side of Montalcino, the historic heart of Brunello. The vineyards, covering fourteen hectares, are planted to rocky soils comprised of Eocene Santa Fiora (marl), at altitudes varying from 380 to 450 metres above sea level. The Fuligni family moved from Maremma to Montalcino early in the 20th century, establishing the estate in 1923. Since 1971, the estate has been lovingly managed by strong women with a passion for wine: Maria Flora, who took over after her father’s passing, and her assistant Daniela Perino, along with her nephew, Roberto.
