"Fuligni’s 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the stars of the vintage. Sweet floral notes weave through a core of expressive red fruit as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2006 shows incredible purity and finesse, most notably in its silky, polished tannins. This isn’t a blockbuster, but rather a wine that conquers through its sheer finesse. The wine spent 27 days on the skins. The volume and weight are influenced by the modern school, everything else is traditional all the way. The 2006 is the first vintage in which the percentage of French oak has been dropped to 25%, which has allowed the purity of the fruit to shine through to a degree that I have seldom, if ever, seen here. Rain during June naturally lowered yields and may partly explain why Fuligni’s 2006 is so phenomenal. Simply put, readers won’t want to miss this superb Brunello."

2008 Fossacolle Brunello di Montalcino

"Fossacolle excels with bold, fruit-driven wines, and the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is no exception. Juicy, expressive and generous, the 2008 wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth. Black cherries, plums, French oak, spices and new leather all come alive in the glass in a wine that offers significant near-term appeal. Layers of fruit continue to build to the creamy, expansive finish. I can't think of too many 2008s that are as expressive as this is today."

2008 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino

"Tar, licorice, game, incense and smoke are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino from Mastrojanni. Big, rich and powerful, the 2008 shows the wilder side of the Sangiovese. The 2008 impresses for its freshness, nuance and delineation, all qualities that are increasingly evident as the wine opens up in the glass, releasing an attractive melange of floral-infused nuances. Firm tannins frame the virile, beautifully articulated finish."
