Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The color is a deep ruby red with garnet hues. On the nose, it is very rich and complex with scents of wild berries and spicy, toasted notes. On the palate, it is powerful yet very elegant, with a persistent finish.
Ideal with game, roasted and grilled meats and medium strength cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"A heady red, this wine has flavors that last for minutes, the substantial tannins holding a message of Etruscan earthiness, a mineral–fruit-skin flavor that's at once sunny and dark. The flavors are full and complete all the way through, tasting like fresh-picked, grilled porcini, which would be delicious with this wine."
93 Points

"A large case production means this wine should prove relatively easy to find across the United States. Val di Suga Brunello is a soft and well-shaped wine with a velvety texture and enduring aromas of cherry, spice and leather. There’s harmony and wholeness here."
91 Points

"Tenimenti Angelini’s 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a very pretty, accessible offering. Medium in body, the wine offers perfumed red fruits, spices, and earthiness in a soft, supple style. The Brunello is already slightly forward in its evolution and doesn’t look to be built for the long haul, but it should continue to drink beautifully for at least several years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016. "

Learn About Val di Suga Map ItMap It

Val di Suga is one of Tenimenti Angelini’s family-owned triad of estates in Tuscany. Located near the ancient hill-town of Montalcino, Val di Suga is the only winery in the region with three vineyards in each of the microclimates surrounding the hill.

Each vineyard has its own unique exposure and soil composition, combining to make a wonderfully balanced and complex Rosso di Montalcino.

Learn About Sangiovese

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...
