Geografico Castello Tricerchi 2007 Sangiovese Grosso (Brunello di Montalcino)
Gorgeous, deep, inky-black and intense. What sets this wine apart is the drying mineral tone of crushed granite that gives it direction and backbone. It’s soft and plush on the palate, with round tones of ripe fruit and sweet spice. Nice density and structure, too, with a spicy aftertaste.

Bright, lively and buoyant, this Brunello offers great aromatic intensity overall. It definitely shows a bright vein of acidity that runs straight through the wine and holds it tightly together. Pair it with oven-baked cheese flan or crispy fried potatoes. You need fatty foods to match that sharp acidity.
