Italian wine lovers rejoice!
We are thrilled to share the news that Siena wine director Rina is currently pouring Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino by-the-glass. And making it even more exciting is the fact that the wine is from the 2013 vintage, arguably the best of the last decade.
But that’s not all: Thanks to her longstanding ties in the Austin wine community, she was able to obtain large-format bottles – magnums — for this limited-time offer.
Why are big bottles better for wine? Most wine experts agree that wine ages more gracefully in large format bottles, often with spectacular results as in the case of this stunning 2013 Brunello.
Some believe it’s because the ratio of wine to bottle surface area is greater than in a 750ml bottle (a magnum contains 1.5 liters or two normal-size bottles of wine). No one really knows definitively why wines age so well in large bottles. But all agree that large bottles can give wine more complexity and nuance.
Made from 100 percent Sangiovese grapes grown in Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino is one of the world most coveted and collectible wines.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to taste a 2013 Brunello (hard to find in today’s market) from magnum no less!
Your wine lover friends will be impressed!
