Limited Edition Italian Brunello

November 8, 2009

BobFor those of you who didn’t have the pleasure to make the Selection Limited Edition Italian Brunello two years ago you are in for a real treat. “Brunello”, roughly translated, means “nice dark one” in the local dialect. It is a clone grape of Sangiovese Grosso. Grown around the town of Montalcino in Italy it is one of the country’s most expensive wines. This wine is often compared to Pinot Noir from Burgundy, but, in my opinion, has one big difference: The wine is light to medium body but with intense tannins. The high acid and intense tannins pair perfectly with any strong flavored food.

I really like this wine because I love strong flavoured foods. In the summer I will BBQ almost every day and this wine goes great with it. I personally love hot BBQ sauces and the Brunello with its big tannins smooth out the heat of the sauce and the wine becomes so much smoother. 

If you enjoyed last years Selection Limited Edition Dolcetto, I think you will really enjoy this. How often do you have the opportunity to make one of Europe’s most famous and expensive wines for less than $4 a bottle?
