Winemaker Notes

Red with garnet highlights. Rich, complex nose opens up immediately with dark cherry, chinotto orange and violet then with wider, more complex notes of blueberry, vanilla, tobacco, cinnamon and chocolate with a menthol finish. In the mouth, this Brunello has a classic style, elegant tannins and a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling

Cedar, red licorice, tar, Christmas pudding, orange peel and dried plums. Full body, chewy tannins, driven acidity and a medium-long finish.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Elegant, balanced and shows a nice mix of berry fruit, with savory underbrush and mineral elements. This is firm and fresh, with a lingering aftertaste on the salty side. Not imported into the U.S. Best from 2021 through 2033.
D 90
Decanter
Owned by Bertani Domains, Val di Suga has three vineyards scattered across the Montalcino zone. Grapes from all three sites go into this panoramic illustration of Brunello, which is aged in large format Slavonian oak barrels. Easy to like, it offers mint, blossom, tea leaf and tobacco aromas. It's straightforward and pleasing on the palate, the ripe red berries held together by resolved tannins before petering out on the finish.

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.
