Wine Region: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
This deep, ruby-red wine has intense, complex aromas of red fruits and spices, with toasty oak notes. The wine shows a silky texture, great finesse and profound flavors, framed by noble, velvety tannins. Though impressive now, this wine will benefit from aging.
Pair with thick porterhouse steak or rich fish such as sturgeon or grouper.
About the Winery
When Silvio Nardi purchased the Casale del Bosco estate in 1950, Montalcino was a little, rural village, the powerful Consorzio del Vino Brunello wasnâ€™t yet an idea, and Nardi was the first "foreigner" to invest in Montalcino (he was from Umbria). Today, Montalcino is a renowned wine community with many international investors, and the 36 vineyard plots of Tenute Silvio Nardi extend east and west of the town on three separate estates. Since 1990, Silvio Nardi's youngest daughter, Emilia Nardi, has focused on vineyard development and produced wines of depth that are profound expressions of the land they come from.
