Winemaker Notes

Light garnet with ruby/orange reflections and aromas of flowers and candied fruit. In the mouth, this wine has great character and flavors of cherry and violets. Full-bodied yet elegant and soft with velvety tannins, it is an authentic example of Brunello.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The delightful 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Lago shows warm cherry and blackberry aromas backed by softer tones of leather, tobacco and spice. The nice thing about this wine is that the red fruit really is in center stage. Although there are no lakes that I know of in the Montalcino appellation, the vineyard designation refers to "lakeside vineyard" fruit. Balsam herb, dried ginger and rosemary add exciting accents to the overall bouquet. This is a very attractive Brunello with a steady and long approach.

Lots of dried berry and floral character. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2016.

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

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.
