About the Wine
Val di Suga holds some of the most enviable vineyards in all of Brunello di Montalcino. Between the estates Spuntalli vineyard and the Vigna del Lago, the estate is able to craft beautiful single vineyard wines. Now What if they were to take fruit from these top terroirs and blend them into a beautifully balanced expression of Sangiovese Grosso? We certainly are in luck because that is excatly what this wine is. 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.
