Val di Suga is the group’s wine estate in Montalcino, the birthplace of the most prestigious of our denominations: Brunello di Montalcino. The property extends over an area of 120 hectares, 55 of which are planted in Sangiovese vines. What makes our estate unique in the area is its layout, with vineyards on three different slopes of the Montalcino hill country: to the north, the Val di Suga vineyard, spreading all around the wine cellar and including the well-known Vigna del Lago planting; to the southwest, the San Polo vineyard, the “youngest” planting, which enjoys a sterling position; to the southeast, the Spuntali vineyard that produces our famous Cru. The opportunity to use grapes from the three areas, each of which is very different from the others in terms of soil type and exposure, permits the Val di Suga estate to produce harmonious, extremely well-balanced wines that combine all the finest characteristics of this terroir.
TreRose is sited in a marvelous 16th-century villa on the gentle slopes leading from Montepulciano down toward the Val di Chiana and Lake Trasimeno, in the heart of the area with the strongest vocation for production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The wine estate covers about 180 hectares, of which 78 are planted in vines. Fifty-five are devoted to production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano: “Simposio” (100% Prugnolo Gentile) and “La Villa” (90% Prugnolo Gentile, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot). The other vineyards are planted in both autochthonous and international vines producing red and white grapes, such as the Viognier variety that originates the intriguing “Busillis” white wine.
The estate also produces a limited quantity of Vin Santo di Montepulciano from aromatic Trebbiano, Grechetto, and Malvasia grapes fermented and aged for about ten years in the typical caratelli, small chestnut-wood casks. This excellent, elegant dessert wine is the star of TreRose’s production.
The San Leonino wine estate is located in Castellina in Chianti near a small village that grew up during the Middle Ages around the Romanesque church of San Leonino, and extends over 100 hectares, 45 of which are planted in vines and 6 in olives. Production centers principally on the most traditional expressions of Chianti Classico wine, but with its “Monsenese” wine (90% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot), pressed from the grapes of the cru of the same name, San Leonino proposes a more contemporary interpretation of Chianti Classico that unites elegance and tradition. The wine estate’s other great terroir wine is the single-grape Salivolpe Syrah, a wine with the typical organoleptic characteristics of the grape and bearing the unmistakable footprint of the Chianti-producing territory.
Collepaglia, the newest member of the Tenimenti Angelini wine estate group, is a territory that has long been owned by the Angelini family, whose origins in the Marche region were determinant for the decision to produce Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi. The vineyards lie on Colle Paglia, which owes its name to the rounded shape of the hilltop, recalling a typical haystack, and to the yellowish color of the soil lent by a high sand content. The vineyard slope, with southern exposure, offers a unique vista ranging from Monte Conero over the sea to Monte San Vicino and as far as the “azure” Monti Sibillini so dear to Leopardi. Unique in the area as to soil, microclimate, and exposure, the Collepaglia vineyards possess a true vocation for producing fine Verdicchio wine.
