Brunello di Montalcino, one of our favorite wines at Siena!
There’s a famous saying among food and wine experts when it comes to food and wine pairing.
“If it grows with it, it goes with it.”
And in no case is that axiom more true than when it comes to Tuscan food.
The best wines to go with Tuscan cuisines are, hands down, Tuscan wines.
And when it comes to Tuscan wines, there is no grape more beloved than Sangiovese.
In the case of Brunello di Montalcino, the wines are made from 100 percent Sangiovese grapes. It’s one of the purest expressions of Tuscan winemaking and Italian wine in general.
That’s a photo of the famous Fortezza, the fortress of Montalcino, where you can taste a number of Brunello wines by the glass.
Nothing goes better with Chef Harvey’s classic wild boar ragù tossed with long broad papardelle than a glass of Sangiovese in the form of Brunello di Montalcino.
