The Fuligni Family Story

The history of the Fuligni family dates back to the 14th century, when the family with roots in Venice moved to England. This was indirectly the start of their present-day activity as Tuscan wine producers.   

The Fuligni family supported the English crown and royalty with various activities, and as a result of hundreds of years of involvement and networking with the royals and nobles, in 1790 the family received a large piece of land in Maremma in the southwest of Tuscany. Here the family began their wine adventure.   

In the early 1900s, Giovanni Maria Fuligni moved to Montalcino and began producing wine here, as the family had done for 100 years in Maremma. 


The Riserva Of The House In Sublime Quality

Today, the Fulignis estate covers 100 hectares on the western side of Montalcino, 14 of which are cultivated with vines. Paolo Vagaggini manages Fulignis' vineyards and enjoys the reputation of being one of Tuscany's most accomplished Sangiovese experts. Together with Roberto Fuligini, he makes the family's great wines.  

In fact, Fugilini produces grappa, olive oil and wine. Their absolute best product is their Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, which in the best vintages is also made as a so-called Riserva, which is the one available for investment here - even in a particularly excellent vintage.

The 2016 Vintage Tops The Fuligni Throne

The last time RareWine Invest was able to offer Fuligni Riserva for investment, it was the 2015 vintage. Here it was pointed out that the wine critics from Vinous are notoriously famous for being harsh in their reviews of Italian wines, so the 95 points awarded to the 2015 vintage was a particularly good assessment.   

Vinous awards a whopping 98+ points to the 2016 Fuligni Brunello Montalcino Riserva, which is the highest score yet for Fuligni from Vinous.    

The Wine Advocate awards it 97+ points. James Suckling awards a full 99 points, placing the 2016 vintage at the same high level as the 2015 vintage.   

Most recently, the 2015 vintage, with 97.3 points across the critics' scores, surpassed the magical 2010 vintage (96.7 points) and took the spot as the best Fuligni Riserva to date.   

The 2016 vintage scores a whopping 98 points across the world's most influential critics, sending it to the top.   

With High Points Comes Demand

Therefore, it is to be expected that the 2016 Fuligni Brunello Montalcino Riserva will be a highly attractive bottle among the world's wine lovers. According to Vinous, 13,008 bottles were produced, which seems like a very limited production, throwing one's mind towards Burgundy's micro-productions in a market where the demand for good Italian wine is steadily increasing.
