#14 Jeb Dunnuck Top 20 2019 Brunello

Perfumed with sweet berry, fresh flower and cedar aromas that follow through to a medium-bodied palate with firm and chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Very classy and structured. Extremely long. Give it time to open. Drink after 2026. - James Suckling

Clear ruby garnet with a brightening rim. Smells of black cherries and blackberries on the nose, very clear, some plum, a hint of leather in the background. Firm, dense tannins, shows a lot of tension and drive, dark berry fruit on the finish, great development and certain ageing potential. - Falstaff

Showing the intensity and concentration of the vintage but also the finesse that’s the hallmark of this storied estate, the 2019 Fuligni is a stunner. It opens with aromas of camphor, violet, dog rose and spice while the full-bodied, enveloping palate delivers succulent black cherry, crushed raspberry, dried mint and licorice alongside velvety tannins. Boasting a weightless elegance, it closes on a note of almond liqueur. Drink 2029–2039. Abv: 15% - Kerin O’Keefe

This historic, unwaveringly reliable estate does not disappoint in 2019. Graciously expressive rather than austere, it will nevertheless reveal more with time; yet the aromas – a striking fusion of chestnut forest and polished wood with fennel and spiced plum – are just so tempting now. It fills the mouth with lustrous red berries and pressed violets and, after an initial caress, tightly woven tannins amplify across the palate, remaining poised in their volume. An intricate and detailed wie with profound depths. Matures in 20- to 30-hectolitre Slavonian oak casks with a small percentage in French tonneaux. - Michaela Morris, Decanter

Dusty and floral, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino opens with a perfumed blend of dried roses,  cherries, mint and lavender candies. It’s elegant and seamlessly silky on the palate, enveloping the senses with ripe red berry fruits contrasted by a bitter clove tinge. A core of brisk acidity maintains a lovely balance as a web of fine tannins saturates the palate, and a pleasantly chewy sensation remains. The 2019 is classic to the core. - Eric Guido, Vinous Media

With dark fruit balanced out by savory notes of tobacco leaf or cigar ash, the Fuligni 2019 Brunello di Montalcino is rich and beautifully concentrated. In little time, the bouquet reveals a floral interlude with dried rose petal and a tropical note of hibiscus. This wine shows a lot of angles, all very pleasant, that work together. The tannins are dusty and finely textured with a hint of powdery cocoa to close. Production is 33,000 bottles. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

The ruby/garnet 2019 Brunello Di Montalcino has a very appealing nose with notes of candied cherries, orange peel, anise, white pepper, and dried roses. Savory and snappy, this medium-bodied Brunello is not lacking for structure and has wonderful energy propelling the wine forward on the palate, angular ripe tannins, and a surge of mineral lift. It’s a gorgeous, classic Brunello that should have plenty of longevity. Drink 2026-2040.- Audrey Frick, Jeb Dunnuck

Rich, refreshing and complex, featuring cherry, plum, earth, leather and mineral flavors. This red is vibrant, with hints of licorice and tamarind. Best of all, the ripe fruit, supple texture and resonant tannins extend to a white pepper–tinged finish. Best from 2026 through 2042. 2,750 cases made, 850 cases imported. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

Maturing deep ruby with orange tinges. Slumbering nose with exotic spice top notes. Still embryonic yet polished with fine-ground, chewy tannins that need more time. Long, finely aromatic cherry and raspberry finish. So sleek and elegant and at the same time not short of concentration. Carries its 15% effortlessly. Real substance yet not heavy.
