From Tuscany in central Italy, Brunello enjoys a distinction as one of Italy’s most favored wines. Brunello ages well and is great for collecting. The wine is bold, rich, and full-bodied. Red and black fruit assertively grace the nose and palate. Brunello is made totally from Sangiovese grapes that take on the characteristics of the soil, vegetation and climate of the region in which it is grown. Layered aromas and velvety tannins complement medium-high acidity. Consider decanting this wine to enjoy its full complexity. This wine pairs well with big protein ladened dishes. You may also enjoy it with salted cheeses and cured meats. Try to avoid pairing with dishes where the wine would overwhelm flavors, such as leafy greens and subtly seasoned meats.
