Brunello di Montalcino is usually the first one that you could think of if you are going to be asked about the best wines in Italy. It is a wine made with 100% Sangiovese with Italy’s highest DOCG classification. Sangiovese is the wine that most wine critics cite to be the best in all of Italy. Of course, we are going to talk about the perfect Brunello food pairings! Brunello, with its savory punch and brilliant acidity make it a fair contender with richly flavored red meats, tomato-based dishes and Tuscan-inspired fare that highlights olive oil and vinegar. Tuscan tomato-based dishes, like tomato bread soup, tend to bring out the herbaceous and tobacco-like qualities in Brunello. Generally, because Brunello di Montalcino packs a wallop of spice, you’ll want to pair it with rich foods with rich flavors, which is why we think red meats and rich vegetables are the way to go. Explore the different vintages of the classic Brunello di Montalcino - one of Italy's best known and most expensive wines produced from the award-winning, family-owned vineyard estate, Castello Banfi.
