Day #342 of the year.

Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino

Today, December 7th, is Cotton Candy Day! Transport yourself to a happier (and most likely warmer) time when you were free to walk in public maskless and consume as much cotton candy as your heart desired. While the outdoor part might not be feasible right now, you can still order packaged cotton candy to your door! Pink, blue, whatever floats your boat – all available on a moment’s notice. If you’re eccentric enough to order cotton candy at the drop of a hat, you’ll probably be amenable to pairing such a treat with wine – specifically, the Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino. Crafted in Tuscany, this wine is full of powerful tannins that exude intense red berry aromas.

Tasting Notes

Deep winy red color, with the characteristic bouquet of fresh red fruit. Great tannic structure on the palate, with an excellent acidic framework. A wine with an excellent, lingering aromatic persistency in the nose and in the mouth.

Food Match

Pair with thick porterhouse steak or rich fish such as sturgeon or grouper.
