Val di Suga Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Vigna Spuntali — 2016 – Vinous – 95 Points
The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Spuntali from Tenimenti Angelini – Val di Suga opens up slowly in the glass. Its understated bouquet focuses on bright red fruits and florals with hints of cedar and a dusting of confectioners’ spice. Silky in texture, cast upon a medium-bodied frame, the 2016 impresses more on purity than power, with a display of wild strawberry and salty minerals which pepper the senses. Tension builds, as crystalline tannins penetrate deeply, clenching the palate in youthful poise yet with a coating of concentrated primary elements here that tempt the imagination.
