Tenimenti Angelini Brunello di Montalcino Val di Suga Vigna Spuntali 2004

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The Val di Suga Estate is comprised of about 130 acres of hillside vineyards surrounding the Montalcino hill. On the Southwestern side is the Vigna Spuntali which has proven over the years to offer the best expression of Sangiovese Grosso. That's why they produce this separate, single-vineyard bottling in the best vnatges. Aged in large 300 liter French oak barrels, it's a wine of power amd elegance. The Wine Advocate scored it 93 points and said "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Spuntali is wonderfully vivid in its dark fruit, menthol, minerals and spices. This is rich and juicy, with tons of density and a sumptuous, layered personality that blossoms over time. The enveloping, creamy texture follows through to the long, refined finish. Ideally, readers should plan on cellaring the Spuntali for at least a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024." Now On SALE for a limited time!
