      Brunello di Montalcino “Poggio al Granchio” DOCG 2010

      Brunello Poggio al Granchio from the same named vineyard smells of sweet cherries, tobacco, flowers and herbs. Multilayered and beautifully textured, this 2010 shows the essence of the great year in its silky, radiant personality and with clear Riserva attributes. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shining ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. Intense and appealing nose, smells of ripe plums, raspberries and fine balsamic notes, inviting. Intense fruit on the palate, opening with fine-meshed tannins, soft and supple, very precise. Very long finish." Falstaff

      "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio al Granchio is a shapely and powerful wine with a tight approach and a smooth succession of wild berry, spice and cola-like aroma. The wine shows a lot of the balsam herb aromas that are so unique to Sangiovese in the Montalcino appellation. In the mouth, this wine presents tightly-knit tannins that should relax and flesh out with more aging time in the bottle. I would suggest waiting at least three years before popping the cork." Robert Parker

      "A firm and tight red with cherry, cedar and light chocolate aromas and flavors. Full and compressed. Dusty tannins. Long and flavorful." James Suckling

      "This is austere, with a dense matrix of tannins supporting cherry, tobacco, stone and leather flavors. Stays fresh, featuring a coating of dusty tannins on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Maturing ruby with orange rim. Subdued spice nose. Slumbering concentration. Hints of dried fruit, but really at the beginning of its development. Great balance and tannic tension, but in a reluctant phase, it seems." Jancis Robinson

    About the winemakers
    Val di Suga
    Tuscany | Montalcino
    Val di Suga

    To speak of Brunello does not only mean to tell about a wine, but to tell about Montalcino, about a world that can be felt in every bottle, in every glass and in every sip. The area around Montalcino is characterised by its contrasts. Northwest of this beautiful city you will find a particularly fertile soil that stretches over gently cultivated hills. South of Montalcino the landscape is sparser, almost wild, the cultivated fields have been taken from the large forests, habitat of wild boars and goats. This naturally influences the quality of the vineyards and the resulting products. The wines from the north are softer and "smother"The ones from the south, on the other hand, are more pronounced and alcoholic.

    The combination of Brunello from the north and Brunello from the south produces a perfect wine. Val di Suga is the only winery in the small world of Montalcino that owns vineyards south and north of this charming city. The estate covers 70 hectares, 55 of which are covered with vineyards. The winery is equipped with the latest technology, but without losing sight of tradition. Oenologist Mario Calzolari is convinced that only the combination of both factors can lead to lasting success. The Val di Suga Winery has been awarded a number of prizes by the specialist press for its performance. More than 90 Parker points, 3 glasses in Gambero Rossothe, maximum ratings in Veronelliand in the Wine Spectatorare just some of the awards that the winery has received in recent times.
