88(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013

(14% alcohol):  Bright red.  Clean aromas of strawberry, flint and underbrush.  Bright and lively in the mouth, with modest nuance to the flavors of red berries, flowers and herbs.  Finishes with spicy tannins and good acid lift but only moderate concentration and length.  I have always been a huge fan of Fuligni's rather understated style of Brunello, but this 2008 is almost too delicate and simple.  Perhaps some bottle age will help it put on flesh; in that case my score will look ungenerous.
