Torciano 2006 Brunello di Montalcino

On our trip to Italy last year we spent a day in the Tuscan countryside, visiting small towns and a winery. We did a fabulous wine tasting lunch at Tenuta Torciano Winery and afterwards purchased some amazing Tuscan wine.

My favorite we tasted that day is the Brunello di Montalcino. Brunello is a popular, high end Tuscan varietal. Torciano 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a deep red-rust color with a slightly smoky smell. It starts off a bit light on the tongue and then develops a slight warm smoky spice, followed by the flavors of dried cherries. The taste ends with a deep, rich finish and a walnut-like taste.

This wine works well with rich pasta dishes and roast meats of beef, pork and poultry.
