Winemaker's Notes

The Val di Suga Brunello di Montalcino is produced from grapes grown in three of Tenimenti Angelini's estate vineyards:

VAL DI SUGA VINEYARD
Location: Northern Montalcino
Elevation: 920 ft.
Soils: Deep clay – produces subtle, elegant wines with higher acidity

VIGNA SPUNTALI VINEYARD
Location: Southwestern Montalcino
Climate: Dry, infl uenced by winds from the Thyrrenian Sea on the Mediterranean coast
Elevation: 985 ft.
Soils: Sandy, stony, fossils present – produces concentrated, powerful wines

SAN POLO VINEYARD
Location: Southern Montalcino, near the Monte Amiata Mountain, the largest mountain in southern Tuscany
Soils: Sandy, stony, fossils present – produces concentrated, powerful wines

"Aromas of ripe fruit, almost cooked with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with round tannins and loads of fruit...intense. Best after 2009."

Val di Suga is one of Tenimenti Angelini’s family-owned triad of estates in Tuscany.

The property encompasses 250 acres, of which 140 are planted in high-density vineyards (7,600 vines/hectare). Each vineyard has its own unique exposure and soil composition, combining to make a wonderfully balanced and complex Rosso di Montalcino.

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
