Our First Impression

The cherry is soft. The mouthfeel is silky. The color borders translucent. But, the wine is textured and mouthwatering with young, sour cherry fruit followed by dry cedar and mild spice. Lovely and balanced, its elegance is in its pure fruit expression.

As soon as you set down your glass, your taste buds will demand another sip.

From an amazing vintage, we can't wait to see what the 2016 Val di Suga Brunello has in store for us in two years, because this Rosso (Baby Brunello) is showing amazingly well.

Our pairing recommendation?

A simple but flavorful dish: fedelini tossed in a plum tomato sauce with fresh basil. Add freshly grated cheese as desired...

Delicious!

$19.95 per bottle / $239.40 per case
