Overview

Val di Suga, the property in Montalcino is composed of 100 hectares, 55 of which are vineyards. One of the keys to making great Brunello, as it is in any wine region, is the vineyards, but more specifically, having vineyards in each of the major growing areas of the township of Brunello. These different vineyards, with varied expositions, placed on differing soils, bring an added level of complexity to the wine which has already yielded great results.

Reviews

Wine Spectator - October 2012 - Bruce Sanderson - 91 points

Rich and plummy, with warm brick, licorice, leather and spice flavors. Shows the warmth of the vintage in its breadth, softness and heady character, but this is satisfying and long, with a sweet fruit finish. Best from 2013 through 2022.
