Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
- Toscana, Italy
Method & Production
A gorgeous ruby red, tending towards garnet with age, this Riserva is overflowing with intense forest fruit aromas on the nose and a complexity brought about by nuances of leather and spice. The palate is dry, fresh and slightly austere, but a softness and warmth is also present and makes the wine beautifully well-balanced. The flavours mirror the moreish complexity on the nose. The finish is persistant and this wine can age well for another 20 years.
Perfect with roasted, grilled, braised and spit-roasted meats and game or hard, matured cheeses.
