Winemaker 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.

W&S 94
Wine & Spirits

Blended from three estate vineyards in Montalcino, this is a wine of subtle fragrance and delicacy. It feels complete and harmonious, its power hidden, delivered with finesse. Dark in tone, it behaves like an essence of plum skin and black minerals, while underneath there is plenty of extract to ground it, carrying the flavor through a long, supple finish that warms the soul rather than the throat.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a rich, deep, powerful wine. Layers of dark fruit melt into tobacco, mocha, dried flowers and mint in this muscular Brunello. The wine’s richness flows through to the generous, enveloping finish. This is a strong effort from Angelini. It will be fascinating to see where the estate’s top label ends up in 2006. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.

James Suckling

Aromas of cedar and milk chocolate with berries and cherries. Full body, with velvety tannins and a chewy finish. Better in a year or two but so delicious now.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Still young and nervous, this wine needs a few more years of cellar aging. There’s great potential here thanks to the wine’s natural aromas of cassis, dried fruit, cherry and toasted nut. In the mouth, it is tart, crisp and long-lasting.

Val di Suga
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. 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.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
