#throwbackthursday to this past May and the birth of my firstborn. A special bottle for us and one for our daughter in 21 years! What's your favorite Brunello? 2010 Valdicava Brunello Di Montalcino This thing is young but drinks very well for such a young powerful wine. Aromas of clove, cigar, tobacco, tart cherries and truffles. Medium full body and fresh acidity. On the palate notes of cherry, mint, and baking spices and a finish that goes on forever. Paired with a pasta bolognese was perfect. This wine is worth every drop of its 99 pt rating! Can't wait to see it age.
