Alcohol/vol 14.5%
Bright ruby red with garnet reflections. Clean, refined notes of dark cherry, prune and violets lead to more complex notes of blueberry, vanilla, tobacco, cinnamon, chocolate and leather with a touch of mint. Full-bodied yet nimble with lasting flavors of cherry, prune and blueberry.

Val di Suga is a winery with a proven track record for consistency. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino opens to generous aromas of dried cherry, wild berry, black currant, leather, cola and balsamic herb. The mouthfeel in this vintage is slightly thinner compared to past editions. Neither does it last as long in terms of persistence. But the fullness and overt intensity of the bouquet does a good job of compensating for this. I would suggest drinking this wine within the next ten years.

Aromas that recall charred earth, toast, oak, black plum, baking spice and espresso meld together on this. The generous, chewy palate doles out fleshy wild cherry, black raspberry, vanilla and mocha alongside supple tannins. It's straightforward, with immediate appeal. Drink through 2020.
