Tenuta La Fuga Brunello di Montalcino DOCG


The Sangiovese grapes reached excellent levels of ripeness in terms of color extraction and elimination of grassy aromas starting from the last ten days of September, when the sugar content reached medium-high levels and acidity was medium or medium-low.

The wine shows intense red berry aromas with leather and incense notes. On the palate, clean, juicy, herb-inflected flavors take over before robust, polished tannins on the long finish.


This wine pairs well with beef and lamb, venison, boar, game birds and hard aged cheeses.


92 Points – The Wine Advocate, February 2014
A wine that delivers many happy surprises. Given the estate’s location in the warmer, lower-altitude Camigliano area of the appellation, I had reasonably expected a flatter, less nuanced Brunello in 2009. Instead, Tenuta La Fuga’s latest release offers a plethora of interesting notes that span from white pepper to leather, to licorice, bacon fat and dried forest fruit. This estate shows a deft hand even in hot growing seasons. The wine boasts a modern style with that characteristic Sangiovese snappy acidity on the close. — Monica Larner
