Val di Suga has become one of the most important estates in Montalcino. Their Riserva blends all 3 zones for maximum quality, with 24 months in botti, 6 months in tank and 30 months in bottle, pre-release.

Since their first release in 1982, Val di Suga has become one of the most important estates in Montalcino. Originally owned by Aldo Moro, Val di Suga was acquired by the Angelini company in 1994, which allowed them to secure more vineyards in the most desirable areas of the region and invest in updating the winery. Uniquely they now own  three  of the greatest single vineyards in Montalcino; Vigna Spuntali, Vigna del Lago and Poggio al Granchio. Each lies on a different hillside and soil type. The winery is located a couple of kilometres just to the North of Montalcino itself.

Montalcino lies in the splendid Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site in the in the heart of Tuscany which is the source of some of Italy's most compelling red wines. The climate is typically dry Mediterranean, with a continental influence given its location between the sea and the central Apennines. The terroir is a single large hill beneath the town, which has numerous soils alongside a variety of aspects and microclimates.

The Brunello Riserva is made from some of the oldest  vines grown across the estate's three main vineyards. A warm fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature and then the wine is aged for at least 3 years in Slavonian oak barrels followed by a further 2 years in bottle.
