Wine Description: Brunello di Montalcino is one of the reigning kings of all the Italian wines. It is made of 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes grown on the hillsides of Montalcino in Tuscany. The wine must be aged a minimum of 4 years, at least 2 of those years in oak, and then fined in the bottle for a minimum of 4 months.
Tasting Notes Flavors of black plum skin, black raspberry, and boysenberries. This fruit is lifted by vanilla earthiness and touches of pepper. Food Pairings Structured red meat dishes such as Florentine Steak, Prime Rib, or Osso Buco. Mushroom sauces or wild game stew. Will compliment well any aged cheese.
