VAL DI SUGA
Brunello di Montalcino
Vigna Spuntali 2010
The Vigna Spuntali is historically known as the best area of the southwestern slope of Montalcino, the slope facing the sea.
Spuntali is a historic cru for Brunello di Montalcino; it is a unique terroir, thanks to which it has become a historic and easily recognizable icon of Brunello over the years.
The Spuntali slope is the sunniest and dryest of the three slopes of Brunello; it has a Mediterranean climate given its vicinity to the sea, less than 40 km. The sea plays a decisive role here, mitigating the warm summer nights and cold winters. This enables an early reawakening of the plant in spring and an important day/night temperature swing in summer. These climatic conditions make this the very first place the grapes are harvested in the whole Brunello di Montalcino area.
In this unique terroir, Sangiovese makes the most of the beneficial effects of the sun, reaching maximum ripening and producing very creamy wines, with sweet, soft tannins and notes of candied fruit.
Strong garnet colour with ruby highlights, it unfolds warm, intense and refined on the nose.
Great explosion of ripe fruit with notes of sour cherry, dried figs, candied fruit, especially orange.
On the palate the sweet and soft tannins accompany the long finish, rich in notes of plums and blackberries.
