Italian Brunello Wine Kit - SelectionBad & Good News folks...Bad first - Winexpert discontinued the 18 Liter version of this awesome kit. GOOD News: Winexpert has introduced it in a 16 Liter Selection edition that will excite your palate.
Italian Brunello without Grapeskins -- Winexpert's Selection 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 finish.
The super concentrated fl avors are generous even in youth, but this sensational wine is phenomenal after four to six months or longer. Good acidity makes this a very food-friendly wine. Like many Italian reds, Brunello shines in the company of assertively flavored 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.Oak: 3 Heavy Body: 4 Medium Full Sweetness: 0
