Bright, deep red. Red cherry, sweet spices and smoky oak on the enticing nose. Strong soil tones complement musky spice, sweet pipe tobacco, and red fruit flavors. Finishes creamy, tactile and long, with polished tannins.
Brunello is a great wine that deserves something substantial, a fine roast leg of lamb with rosemary, pot roast, roast squab with truffles or that most famous dish of all Bistecca alla Fiorentina - Tuscan-style steak, ideally sourced from the indigenous Chianina beef. More rustic dishes such as Tuscan sausages and beans or pappardelle with wild boar (cinghiale) will also pair well.
