Time for another wine of the day and this time we head to Italy for the one-of-a-kind Brunello di Montalcino.
Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino 2008 @ £42.95 - Buy it here!
"One of the clear highlights of the vintage, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino emerges from the glass with black cherries, violets, cloves, menthol, licorice and tar. The 2008 stands out for its impeccable balance and layered, highly expressive personality. A translucent, mid-weight, silky finish is totally striking. Once again, Fuligni made one of the more refined wines of the village. In 2008 there is no Riserva. All the best of the lots made it into the straight bottling. If I had to bet on a 2008 Brunello that might surprise on the upside in a few years, Fuligni would be near or at the top of my list."
Antonio Galloni 92/100
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023+.
Probably your last chance to get your hands on this utter dream of a wine as only a few bottles left. Cheers!
