Italian Brunello Wine Kit w/ Grape Skins - Selection International
Italian Brunello with Grapeskins -- Winexpert’s Selection International Italian Brunello with skins is a dark-cherry
color with highlights of gorgeous ruby-garnet. Bold, yet supple, the big, smokyearthy
nose of ultra-ripe cherry and currant-like fruit gives way to a hint of tar
and cracked black pepper, cedar, whiff s of licorice, leather, and also plums and
black cherries, followed by a richly tannic, long, long fi nish.
The super concentrated fl avors are generous even in youth, but this sensational
wine is phenomenal after six months to a year. Good acidity makes this a very
food-friendly wine. Like many Italian reds, Brunello shines in the company
of assertively fl avored foods. Osso buco and veal piccata are splendid
accompaniments, as are hard cheeses such as Asiago and Pecorino Romano.
Its firm backbone of acids and tannins makes it work well with rich and spicy
foods like Italian sausages or lasagna.
