Day #57 of the year.

Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

If you look up the top 10, top 5, or even top 3 great Italian wines to try, each one of those lists will include Brunello di Montalcino. Once you taste it, it’s easy to see why: full-bodied, intense, with notes of dark berries and fruit offset by undertones of leather and spice, complex, and able to cellar for years, it’s a wine for the ages. This Brunello from Tenute Silvio Nardi would be a great pick for Open That Bottle Night, too, which falls on February 27 every year. It’s times like these when I wish I owned a Coravin to sip a little Brunello now, then wait for it to evolve through the years…but of course, that’s only possible if I can resist drinking the whole bottle! A Coravin goes against the spirit of Open That Bottle Night, anyway, so I plan to enjoy this entire beautiful bottle of Brunello in its entirety.
