OUR WINES

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO D.O.C.G.

Aged by regulations for four years, of which approximately two and a half are in wood, Fuligni’s regular Brunello di Montalcino also has optimal lasting characteristics but is destined for more immediate drinking. With its elegant combination of fruit and spicy aromas, the Fuligni Brunello is, in any case, the result of carefully selected grapes coming from low yields per hectare and is not produced in years when the quality of the harvested grapes is not suitable to maintain the high standards of the estate.

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO D.O.C.G. RISERVA

In the biggest years, the Fulignis select a Brunello Reserve which is aged, according to regulations, for five years, three of which are in wood. The grapes primarily come from the oldest vines in the vineyard. The Brunello Reserve produced from these vines certainly presents characteristics of extreme longevity but immediately reveals its important quality and appeal with the potential of an ageing which may occur over many decades according to storage conditions. Fuligni’s Reserve can be found in the cellars of the biggest collectors and represents an excellent investment thanks to its high value on the market and in auctions.

ROSSO DI MONTALCINO D.O.C. GINESTRETO

The Fuligni Rosso di Montalcino bears the name Ginestreto and, for many years, has been well-known on the market as a product of high quality due to an attentive selection of grapes. Partially aged for about six months in French oak tonneaux, it bears a strong fruity fl avor which can complement an endless array of dishes.

S.J. (SAN JACOPO) I.G.T. TOSCANA
The Fulignis have produced this Tuscan I.G.T. “variation on the Sangiovese theme” for a few years now. S.J. originates from a blend of mostly Sangiovese grapes from own vines and of Merlot from the Bandita vineyard. Aged for some months in French oak tonneaux, it affords a slightly soft impact preserving the brilliant quality and freshness of the Sangiovese grape.

GRAPPA DI BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO
The Grappa has been traditionally distilled in Gioacchino Nannoni’s artisan distillery in Paganico.  It is made from Fuligni Brunello marc within 48 hours of racking and distilled in a slow discontinuous
four-column still.

EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
The vines and the olive trees favour a natural place of elevation in Montalcino.  The Fuligni olive grove is located at an altitude that varies from 300 to 450 metres above sea level on the classic eastern side of the hill of Montalcino.  The harvest is strictly manual and occurs in mid-November with a cold pressing of all varieties immediately after picking.  The olive trees, which vary in age (some are very old and miraculously survived the great freeze of 1990), also differ in varieties including Correggiolo, Frantoio and Leccino.  The resulting oil is characterised by beautiful shades of green and is generously fragrant in its fruity hints and typically aggressive peak which makes it perfect for typical Tuscan dishes including all types of meat and, most of all, for “bruschetta”.
