Signature Brunello: Brunello is one of Italy’s most famous and prestigious wines. In Tuscany, its homeland, it shares the top spot with only the highly-prized Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and of course the ubiquitous Chianti. Modernists set the ball rolling for a ‘fruitier’ style in the 1980s, which made the wine less tannic. Sangiovese grapes are transformed into a wine with
Robust characters that are world renowned.
Food Pairings: Brunello is a great wine that deserves something substantial, a fine roast leg of lamb with rosemary, pot roast pheasant, and roast squab with truffles or that most famous dish of all bistecca alla Fiorentina, Tuscan-style steak, ideally sourced from the indigenous Chianina beef.
Italian White Blend: Italian White is a blend of Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Inzolia. Pinot Gris, the weightiest of the three, gives the blend its body, Sauvignon adds more acid and freshness. Inzolia is from Sicily and adds a gentle aromatic nose, a lemon and fruity palate and a fresh, clean, spicy finish. The blend typically displays various stone fruit flavours, highlighted by peach, nectarine and apricot, and sometimes has a high level of alcohol if the Pinot Gris is grown in a hot climate.
Food Pairings: Citrus Cooked Fish, Thai Green Curry, Crab meat salad, or Gnocchi in a light cream sauce.
