Seeing a lot of people noting that this is oxidized and this bottle was too, even though I've had other bottles last year of the same vintage that were not. Kind of a white Burg premox thing happening with this bottling apparently which is too bad because this wine is/was awesome. Even oxidized it was worth drinking with lovely texture and balance. — a month ago
Fuligni consistently makes the most elegant Brunellos. This 1994 was definitely showing its age a bit but still showed some great character, with delicate red fruit and herb notes shining through, especially with a nice filet smothered in sautéed mushrooms. — a month ago
This wine is wow. Screw cap. Purchased at the winery in 2008. Showing no ill effects of aging, just flavor intensity and complexity. Focused wild strawberry, stewed cherry, toasted sage, baking spice. Can I say wow again? — a month ago
DRC brandy??? Didn't even know this existed. Armagnac like. Prominent heat but tremendous depth of flavor and finish. Caramelized banana, burnt orange peel, roasted chestnuts, graham cracker, brown butter. Really fun. — a month ago
