Filippo continues his journey in Montalcino, where he tastes the Vigna Spuntali 2016.
The origins of the Val di Suga wine estate were so different from what we see today. Imagine that the lands belonging today to the Val di Suga winery were originally used to produce and grow agricultural fodder destined for area farms. The transformation of these prime wine lands is a true testament to the Gruppo Angelini, who had the foresight and dedication to producing a top-notch Brunello di Montalcino selection, one which we all can enjoy today with Filippo Bartolotta, Mamablip’s wine expert.
1988 brought about the purchase of the Spuntali plot, arguably one of Montalcino’s most prized locations in the Brunello di Montalcino territory. And it’s just from this very plot that Filippo is tasting today’s selection, Val di Suga Vigna’s Spuntali Brunello 2016 vintage. Part of the Bertani Domain, after having been developed into a powerhouse by the Angelini family group (of Italian healthcare and wellness fame), the winery today is developing astonishingly high-quality Brunello wines you won’t want to miss tasting.
