    From the rolling hills of Tuscany, we present this La Colombina Brunello di Montalcino. It will cellar for several years to come, but it's ready to drink at this very moment.  Intense, robust and harmonious, this spectacular Brunello deserves your time and attention as a solo glass as the festivities unfold... In case someone is hungry, it's not a bad idea to have some mini roast beef and horseradish panini triangles on hand. The full body and flavor of this beautiful Brunello warrant red meats, meat sauces, mushrooms, aged cheeses and more. We can't get enough of it with grilled rib lamb chops next to fresh peas tossed with Parmesan and mint. A dish of papardelle with a sumptuous duck ragu will only elevate the boatload of delicious of this Tuscan dream in a bottle. And finally, you can't go wrong with T-bone steaks grilled to perfection with roasted wild mushrooms on the side. We can't think of a better way to say ciao to those lovely tannins... Open another bottle and allow the reverie to continue with a top shelf, aged Pecorino cheese. Sounds pretty perfetto to us!

    Wine Spectator:  "This red combines power and elegance, with bright acidity and dense tannins. Cherry and plum fruit are accented by leather, tobacco and mineral as this glides to a lingering conclusion. Shows fine balance, with a tealike finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. " Jun 2017

    Winery:  "This warm and pleasantly balanced wine unites power and elegance.  In the nose it presents scents of ripe, red berries, liquorice and leather.
