BABY BRUNELLO Under $20btl- VERY LIMITED!!!!!!!
The history of Val di Suga began in 1969, when a company owned by Aldo Moro bought farmland to the north of Montalcino and built a production and sales unit. That land, used for producing fodder at the time, was gradually converted to vineyards and underwent several changes in ownership. In 1982 Val di Suga started to produce wine and created a winemaking cellar. The first vintage to be sold was the “Val di Suga Brunello Riserva 1977”.
Right from the start, there was a rapid growth in vinegrowing and winemaking. A few years later, in 1994, the Gruppo Angelini came along and gave Val di Suga new drive and a new direction. The first winery to produce three vineyard wines located on the three slopes of the Montalcino hill.
The Rosso di Montalcino is made in the same zones as Brunello and is made from the same grape varietal- Sangiovese di Brunello. The wine is made with much less ageing than Brunello and by law must be aged a minimum of 1 year, versus 3 years for Brunello. Therefore the style of the Rosso is a medium bodied easy drinking wine with some enjoyable similarities to Brunello. The Rosso exhibits the wonderful flavour characteristics of the grape varietal and has long been a favorite of Italian wine fans.

Val di Suga is one of the few estates in the region to own three vineyards. This allows for the opportunity to highlight the variances and nuances of different soils and aspects in their final wine. The 2014 Rosso di Montalcino offers a bright rush of acidity, which makes this an exceptionally food-friendly wine. Lots of red berry and red plum tones in an elegant and lithe package that is fresh enough to sip on its own, but will be lovely with pizza, lighter meats or red pasta sauces. And, in 2014, Val di Suga did not make the three individual vineyard Brunello’s and instead, blended it mostly in this Rosso. So you really can call this a BABY BRUNELLO.
