    PairingThe wine is substantial enough to cope with big meat dishes such as game, goose, steak, braised beef, offal and rustic stews. Mushroom dishes are a good match and milder cheeses including goats' and sheeps' cheese.

    This award-winning Brunello di Montalcino is a really special wine; it will not disappoint if you like well developed Italian wines. It may need to be decanted because of a little sediment but also because its savoury aromas may need a little time to open up and reveal the underlying fruits. On the palate, there are many flavours - fruit including sour cherries, plums, red fruits - redcurrants and cranberries - plus spice, cedar, vanilla and a tomato-savouriness. 

    The tannins have softened since this was tasted 'en primeur' by Decanter, i.e. before bottling. The wine has been aged in barrel for three years and then in bottle for a further year before release. It can be aged for much longer still if you can resist it but it is drinking very nicely now.

    It is a fine example of a well structured, traditional style Brunello, fine subtle tannins, juicy fruits and a medium-body.
