About the Wine
Vigna Spuntali is Val di Suga's top wine, it is all sourced from their highly desired Spuntali vineyard. The fruit that comes off this vineyard always produces great wine, which is why when the vintage is great, the way 2009 was, you take as much as you can get! This wine is a couple of years into its drinking window and will impress for another 5 to 10 years. Do not miss what might be your last opportunity to get your hands on this incredible vintage.
Val di Suga’s history began in 1969, when a company owned by Aldo Moro bought agricultural land to the north of Montalcino and built a manufacturing and retail business on it. Previously used for forage, these lands were gradually made into vineyards as they changed hands a number of times until, in 1982, Val di Suga began making wines in its own winemaking cellars. In 1988 the company bought one of the most famous of Montalcino’s single vineyard sites, Spuntali, around 15 hectares of vineyard acknowledged by all to be one of the best Brunello terroir zones, on a south-west facing site.
Aging: 24 months in French Oak
Tasting Notes: 100% Sangiovese. Strong garnet color with ruby highlights Unfolds warm, intense and refined on the nose. Great explosion of ripe fruit with notes of sour cherry, dried figs, candied fruit and especially orange. On the palate, the sweet and soft tannins accompany the long finish, rich in notes of plums and blackberries
The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Spuntali is a thick and brooding wine with high fruit definition and luscious layers of dark berry flavors. This is a beautifully executed wine that offers a great deal of elegance and power thanks to the polished and sophisticated nature of its aromatic components. Cherry, tobacco and dark chocolate are all heavily on display. The mouth offers firmness and good grip with lasting spice and dark fruit. ~94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pretty and sexy with dried berries, spices, cedar and dried mushrooms. Tangy acidity buttresses the dried fruits. Firm tannins. Drink now. ~92 James Suckling
