Sip of the Day

Day #109 of the year.

Tenuta La Fuga Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

National Garlic day celebrates one of my favorite root vegetables. Garlic, is one of those things like olive oil or wine… when you add it to a hot pan, some kind of magic happens. Minced, chopped, or grinded, this delightful vegetable makes any savory meal better, and unless you eat it fried as a whole (yes I do this and don’t judge me) you wont get terrible garlic breath. In the tradition of my ancestors, I like my garlic heavy meal with a serving of Italian wine like Tenuta La Fuga Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. When it comes to garlic or wine, (in my humble opinion) there’s never too much of a good thing.

ORIGIN

Tuscany, Italy

Grapes

100% Sangiovese

Tasting Notes

The wine shows intense red berry aromas with leather notes on the nose and palate. The wine is full-bodied with high acidity, polished tannins and a long finish.

Pairs well with all types of meat, game and hard, aged cheeses.
