Brunello di Montalcino is a special type of Sangiovese wine hailing from the region of Tuscany, Italy. The Brunello grape undergoes extended aging in oak barrels, giving it a robust and complex flavor profile. Notes of cherry, tobacco, leather, and earth are common among Brunello wines, as well as hints of spice and drying tannins on the finish. Pairing Brunello with rich dishes such as slow-roasted meats or pappardelle with truffle can enhance its flavors even further. Brunello di Montalcino may be hard to find outside of Italy, but those lucky enough to taste it will surely appreciate its unique and elegant character. Cheers!
