Caprili Brunello di Montalcino 2014
Channel your inner Tuscan and open a bottle of Caprili Brunello di Montalcino a couple of hours before you're ready to pour. Warning: the aromas may conjure hallucinations of rolling hills and a patchwork of vineyards, wheat fieldss and olive orchards, all under the most beautiful Tuscan sun. In the meantime, you can check on your leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic as it roasts to a delicious doneness. Or, make a ragu of cinghiale
(wild boar) to go with a thick, hearty pappardelle. Set out some Marcona almonds to accompany your first glasses and the wonderful earthy side of this Caprili. Tuscan sausage with beans is a main dish which will go beautifully with that same earthy side. And if you're not in a meaty mood, make it a portabella risotto; don't skimp on the good Parmesan. Looking for a reason to have another glass after all that? A platter of aged Gouda and some dried fruit is your answer. Buon Apetito
: "Softer and less tannic than the Brunello Riserva. This wine has an intense color and aromas with ample notes of red berries. On the palate gives a body of great balance with tannins well integrated into the structure, which ensures elegance and longevity. It is recommended to uncork the bottle a few hours before serving."
