This shows focus and balance, compared to some of the other Brunellos here in this year. Full body, creamy and ripe tannins with roundness and beauty. Lovely already. Drink or hold.

The talented Andrea Lonardi established Val di Suga's single-vineyard project in 2012. He adapts the winemaking for each in order to best express the individual terroirs. In the cool, northern reaches of Montalcino, Vigna del Lago is typically the last to ripen and lightest in body. It ages exclusively in large 50-hectolitre casks. All red fruit, floral and citrus nuances, this is buoyant, bright and exuberant and the soft tannins are seductively textured. Ready now. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028.

Nice deep red color. Pure aromas of red plum and ripe strawberry, with notes of minerals and balsamic oils. Soft and rich in the mouth, with an unctuous texture and insidious sweetness. Rather broad in flavor for this bottling and much rounder than usual; no doubt the warmer 2015 vintage contributed a certain measure of fat here. An excellent Brunello that finishes long.

Aromas of black-skinned berry, charred earth and new leather lift out of the glass. The concentrated medium-bodied palate offers dried black cherry, tobacco, star anise and orange zest alongside austere fine-grained tannins and firm acidity. Drink 2023–2032.
