      All About Brunello Wine

      Brunello wine, which has a delicious floral scent, hails from Montalcino, a hill town in Tuscany, Italy. It's best served at room temperature, in large glasses, without completely filling the glass so you can fully appreciate the aroma. Like many other red wines, Brunello gets better with age. A good bottle has typically aged from 10 to 25 years. Brunello has a centuries-long story, and many quality vintage bottles are available. 

      What is Brunello's flavor profile?

      This Italian wine has a high acidity and high tannin content, with spicy notes of dried oregano, red pepper and espresso. A hint of balsamic makes the flavor profile unusual yet appealing. The taste of the wine is rich and robust thanks to Montalcino's dry climate, which makes the grapes ripen consistently. 

      What type of food pairs best with Brunello?

      Thanks to its rich flavor, Brunello red wine pairs well with red meats, especially veal, wild boar and lamb. Its notes work well with spicy dishes and tomato-based sauces. When hosting a get together at home, serve Brunello with cheeses such as Parmigiano-Reggiano, pecorino and gorgonzola. Other tasty food pairings include smoked salmon, truffles and mushrooms. This wine is ideal for Italian-themed evenings when you ramp up the festa atmosphere with background music from famous Italian-American crooners and modern singers. 

      A short story of Brunello di Montalcino

      Brunello was born in the 19th century from the idea of chemist Clemente Santi who wanted to revolutionize the agriculture industry. He started to grow the Sangiovese Grosso grape variety and to experiment with new winemaking techniques. In 1865, he decided to call his wine "Brunello di Montalcino." Later, the area was hit by Phylloxera, a microscopic aphid. Fortunately, the Sangiovese Grosso grape variety was highly resistant to the infestation, allowing Brunello to become one of the most renowned (and sold) wines in Italy and abroad.
