    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Riserva 2004 comes from a 5-star vintage and was aged 5 years, 3 of which in oak. It's still a baby and will show its full colors in a couple of years, to go on living for a very, very long time. Depth and structure have all the magnitude of great Brunello Riservas, hailing from select grapes and oldest vines. Intense ruby, garnet color, the bouquet calls to mind spice, red fruit and subtle coffee nuances; on the palate, the noble tannins indicate future longevity and need to mellow out at this stage; they are complemented by firm acidity and brilliant notes of currant, cherries and spice. - Maria Flora Fuligni & Roberto Guerrini

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of blueberry and blackberry, with hints of lilac. Full and velvety, with powerful chewy tannins, but so well-defined and polished. Very long and intense, with bright acidity. Needs time to come together. Best after 2012.

    The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva reveals gorgeous clarity, precision and richness in a generous, enveloping style. The fruit remains incredibly pure and almost primary at this stage, suggesting the wine has many years of fine drinking ahead of it. Deceptively medium in body, Fuligni's Riserva has plenty of tannic clout to back up the sexy, opulent fruit. A layered, impeccable finish rounds out this utterly brilliant Riserva. Readers will not want to miss this fabulous Brunello from Fuligni. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. What a joy it is to taste these new releases from Fuligni. The Brunellos in particular are both exceptional for their respective vintages. The wines capture a middle ground between modern and traditional styles that is immensely appealing.
