Why I suggest Castelgiocondo Brunello DOCG
Brunello Montalcino of Sangiovese di Lamole grapes from Maison Frescobaldi only. The optimum, a well-structured wine that welcomes the weather in the area and is enjoyed by the vines. Spectacular wine in all its facets, the most appropriate definition of which is "Aristocratic". Sangiovese represents the king of Italian red wine. Bright in color, elegant with an olfactory component, delicate on the palate for velvety tannins. Full-bodied and rich in dry extract, especially thanks to the harvest period. Thermal excursions are the panacea, ideal for the accumulation of polyphenols in the skins, ensuring superlative quality for the production of this spectacle of nature.
The Sommelier: Ruby red color with purple reflections in aging. Fruity aroma of cherry, raspberry, black currant; hints of chestnut fruit together with notes of ripe persimmons. In the mouth warm with defined softness and balance in the tannic part, return of fruity aromas in a very persistent long finish.
Suggested pairings: Tasty Orecchiette and Troccoli with rabbit sauce, bolognese noodles, pappardelle with meat sauce, rabbit alla cacciatora, grilled pork sausages. Beef strips, vegetables of all kinds, semi and mature cheeses. With fresh hard fruit; nectarines, mangoes. Dried fruit.
Uncork and wait ½ h before serving at a temperature between 16 - 18 ° C in a large Ballon glass.
Winery: The Marchesi Frescobaldi can boast the uniqueness in Italy of representing the almost millennial history of the production of wines from large vineyards in Tuscany. The historicity of the Frescobaldi family, thirty generations is enough to give prestige to this name, which has become aristocratic over the centuries ... go to the file.
