The Fuligni family lived in the Tuscan Maremma at the beginning of the 20th century. To escape the malaria, the family moved to Montalcino and in 1923 bought the Cottimelli estate from Gontrano Biondi Santi, named after the 16th-century monastery that stood there. This is the classic zone where Brunello had always been made. Fuligni also bought an 18th-century palazzo in the center of Montalcino with beautiful vaulted cellars where wines are still aged today. The vines, which extend over ten hectares, are mainly in Cottimelli at altitudes ranging from 380 to 450 meters above sea level. Here the land, which is mainly oriented to the east, belongs entirely to the geological formation of Santa Fiora (marl) of Eocene origin and consists of mainly rocky terrain.

The Brunello di Montalcino from Eredi Fuligni has already received the magic score of 100/100 from James Suckling and is at number 8 in the Top-100 best wines 2019. Also at Parker, Fuligni is on the shortlist of the best wine estates in Montalcino.

The Fuligni Rosso di Montalcino bears the name Ginestreto and has been known on the market for years as a high quality wine due to a careful selection of grapes. Partly aged for about six months in French oak tonneaux. Always highly rated by both Suckling and Parker, the Ginestreto has a cherry red color with fruity and refined aromas of raspberries, cherries and flowers. Medium in structure with fine tannins and subtle fruit. Floral aftertaste.
