Parker and Suckling are quite unanimous and here Fuligni is on the shortlist of the best wine estates in Montalcino and these are of course very famous with their Bruenllo's and Rosso's but Fuligni has recently enriched its wine range with a Supertuscan namely a high-end red wine JOANNI coming from 100% Merlot grapes from a small Merlot vineyard that has been part of the estate for decades. The first vintage was the 2015 and this 2016 is the successor. Fuligni will only make this wine in the top years and as is known, 2015 and 2016 were the top years in this Brunello appellation. This Fuligni Joanni matures for about three years in French oak barrels and then another year in bottle, so this 2016 Fuligni Joanni has only been on the market since 2021. It is of course a Supertuscan because a 100% Merlot coming from the Montalcino hill does not meet the requirements of the appellation.

The Joanni has fresh and full aromas of plums, blueberries, dark spices and vanilla. Juicy and round with ripe and firm tannins but a very nice floral undertone as well as a spicy acidity to give shape and punch. A new merlot super Tuscan from this top producer and is a typical Italian Pomerol.
