Ginestreto translates to “broom” in Italian. It is also the name of a small village south of Sienna. But for most who know, Ginestreto is Fuligni’s always excellent Rosso di Montalcino, sourced from the cooler south-eastern side of Montalcino where the soils are a mix of clay and marl.
Want to drink an affordable “baby” Brunello di Montalcino, then discover legendary Eredi Fuligni’s Ginestreto Rosso di Montalcino!! Also 100% Sangiovese from younger vines and aged for just six months in Allier French tonneaux before release. Perfect with wood fired pizza, or traditional meat ragu or meatballs and pasta. But also roast pork or veal, or cedar planked fresh King Salmon.
“A beautiful Rosso di Montalcino with berry, cherry, light cedar and chocolate undertones. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, linear tannins that are polished and lightly chewy. Just the right amount of tannin and cedar at the finish. Drink or hold.” – 92 points, James Suckling
