Winemaker Notes

Bright ruby red with garnet reflections. On the nose, clean, refined notes of dark cherry, prune and violets lead to more complex notes of blueberry, vanilla, tobacco, cinnamon. Full-bodied yet nimble with lasting flavors of cherry, prune and blueberry.

James Suckling
This is a red with soft and silky tannins. Full and savory flavors that deliver dried strawberry and light walnut character. Hints of cream. Flavorful and delicious. Drink now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Val di Suga is a winery with a proven track record for consistency. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino opens to generous aromas of dried cherry, wild berry, black currant, leather, cola and balsamic herb. The mouthfeel in this vintage is slightly thinner compared to past editions. Neither does it last as long in terms of persistence. But the fullness and overt intensity of the bouquet does a good job of compensating for this. I would suggest drinking this wine within the next ten years.

Val di Suga, Italy
Val di Suga Poggio Al Granchio Vineyard Winery Image

A historical producer in Montalcino that dates back to the 1960’s. Val di Suga is a pioneer in the production of the terrior-driven Brunello and the only producer making three single-vineyards in three different estates: Vigna del Lago in the North-East, Vinga Spuntali in the South-West and Pogigo al Granchio in the South-East. Because of the different micro-climates, soils and winemaking styles, the wines show different expressions of Sangiovese.

Montalcino Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
