Brunello di Montalcino, alongside Chianti, is arguably the most prestigious of all Italian wines. It certainly perches on the top rung in Tuscany, despite its relatively short history. The wine is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes grown in Montalcino – a classic Tuscan hilltop village 20 miles (30km) south of Siena. Brunello translates roughly as 'little dark one', and is the local vernacular name for Sangiovese Grosso, the large-berried form of Sangiovese which grows around Montalcino.

A classically poised, precise Sangiovese from the region’s most expressive terroirs.

Aged in a combination of Slavonian and French oak casks for two years; aged in bottle for one year.

Food pairing

Recommended combination with structured and succulent dishes such as red meats and roasts, or even just with Parmigiano.
