Ratings and Reviews

The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino Ginestreto is a gorgeous expression of Sangiovese fruit, showing spiced black cherries with hints of clove, sage and dusty florals. It’s ripe and generous yet also perfectly balanced, blending wild berry fruit with salty minerals, as zesty acids keep its energy high. There’s a bit of a tannic tug here, but it never gets in the way of this truly enjoyable Rosso; instead it just punctuates the expression perfectly. It will be hard to keep your hands off, but another year in bottle may bring out further depths. 

Eric Guido - Vinous Media 93

The wine is aged four to five months in steel and six to seven months in Slavonian oak barrels and Allier oak tonneaux. Finally, the wine is aged two months in bottle. 13.50% Deep ruby in color, fruity and floral bouquet with subtle spice; silky, structured and well balanced, with soft, noble tannins. For Fuligni, terroir is the essence of great wines, and is the cultural legacy of generations of winegrowers who work a piece land to capture its best exposures and to perfect cultivation and aging techniques just as the Fulignis have done over the last century at their estate in Montalcino. Pairs well with structured dishes, such as red meat, pasta with flavorful sauce or ragout
