Just south of the medieval town of Siena lies Montalcino, one of Italy’s most exquisitely fashionable wine-growing areas. Aged for five years before release (the longest in Italy), this wine offers a combination of body and finesse that is remarkable. Once you’ve decanted this wine so it can breathe, it offers delicious aromas of red fruit, mushrooms, and olives, while the palate is robust with flavors of nutmeg and oak. Pair this wine with grilled steak, marinated portabella mushrooms over polenta, or a rabbit ragu pasta!
REGION: Toscana, Italy
