Val di suga
One of the most significant estates in Montalcino not solely for the quality of its wines but also for the unique fact that Val di Suga occu-pies three of the more important cru of the Montalcino hill. The final distinguishing point is that these three sites lie in the three main sec-tions of the DOCG, with Vigna del Lago to the North, Spuntali to the South-west and Poggio al Granchio to the South-East
Although the three cru are vinified into their own distinct vineyard bottlings, it is the ‘regular’ cuvee of Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino that arguably benefit the most, themselves being blends each vintage of all three sites meaning they carry the balance of the Northern sec-tor with the structure and power thanks to the vineyards in the South.
Each unique vintage is allowed to shine thanks to long macerations and large-format oak usage, with some barriques used depending on the wine and the conditions in that year. Make no mistake though, these are some of the most fantastically expressive and impressive wines from Montalcino which, whether tasted individually or in the context of the estate’s whole lineup, reflect the region wonderfully.
