  • 1999 E. Fuligni (Cottimelli) Brunello di Montalcino - Italy, Tuscany, Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino (9/5/2009)
    Decanted 2 hours before dinner and enjoyed over the course of the evening. This wine smelled sublime with dark cherries, floral and chocolate notes that follow through to the palate and pick up a distinct strawberry flavor, spice and tobacco. Additional hints of chocolate chime in on the long finish. I have little experience with Brunello, but this was really delicious. Probably in need of more time as this has continued to evolve over the evening. A real "wow" wine for me. (95 pts.)
