Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Tuscany, Italy 1999
Robert ParkerThere are few surer bets in this appellation than the wines of Roberto Guerrini, who manages to find time both to run his family vineyards and cellar and teach criminal law at the University of Siena. The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, in its combination of power and elegance, shows why the house has a dedicated following – the string of highly successful vintages began here in 1983 and there has not been a single misstep for over a decade and a half. Very fresh and brilliant in color, the potent and varietal aromas of wild cherries, tobacco, and chocolate swell in the glass and the flavors have a similar warmth and expansion, sweet and ripe on the attack, round, dense, and polished on the mid-palate and finish. Drink: 2005-2018.
Wine SpectatorVery fresh aromas of pressed flowers with hints of plums and raspberries. Full-bodied, with super well-knit tannins and a long, long finish of ripe fruit and beautiful character. I love this. This is better than 1997. Get it fast. Best from 2005 through 2012. 1,600 cases made.
