One of the grand Italian wines, developed in the 19th Century by Ferruccio Biondi-Santi from a clone of Sangiovese known as Sangiovese Grosso or locally Brunello. One of the first varietal Tuscan wines for ageing. Ageing is for 50 months for the normale and 62 months for the riserva. The Val di Suga winery is in the northeast of the municipality of Montalcino; the building, embraced by a long line of cypresses, seems to welcome those arriving in Montalcino from Siena. An imposing underground barrique cellar was built in 2000. Today the winery has a functional winemaking area which houses the 100-150 hl stainless steel tanks and the original 80-200 hl concrete vats, which have been restored on the outside and lined with glass on the inside, but all preserved in the full awareness of regaining a value and a fundamental tradition. Winemaker Andrea Lonardi is a winemaking Wunderkind. Our head buyer Mark Faber first met him in London where they attended the Master of Wine global seminar together, and Mark was blown away by Andrea's technical expertise and knowledge, as well as his flawless palate. Mark sought him out in Italy, and persuaded him to sell his Val di Suga wines in Australia. This small winery is a passion project for Andrea, who makes millions of bottles per year u(more...)
