"Opulent and elegant from the start, the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio al Granchio moves steadily over the palate with a great sense of energy and density. Red fruit, tobacco, smoke, crushed mineral, licorice and dried rose lift from the glass. Like the other wines in the Val di Suga portfolio, this Brunello does a great job of delivering power and elegance at the same time. That is never an easy achievement for any wine. In the case of the Poggio al Granchio vineyard designate, the wine is more delicate and feminine on the finish.
Val di Suga is owned by the recently rebranded Bertani Domains, an umbrella group for a collecting of Italian wine estates that includes the celebrated Bertani Amarone estate in Valpolicella. I am impressed by the hard work underway at the Montalcino property. Val di Suga is adding new wines and is taking care to select vineyard designate expressions for its line of Riservas. The quality of wines is also greatly improved in both the 2009 and 2010 vintages." Robert Parker 92 Points
