  • Year 2006
  • Food Pairing Herbed steak or fresh pasta topped with hearty meat sauce
  • Price $53.95

In addition to the sweet cherry fruit, there are a few enticing things going on in this regal Tuscan red. I love the sherry-like, nutty tang as well as the more classic Brunello notes of tobacco and desiccated fall foliage. There’s the faintest essence, too, of barnyard, just enough to be pleasant, especially if you’re a farmer. Try it with herbed steak or fresh pasta topped with hearty meat sauce. $54.50 in Que.
