Day #318 of the year.

Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino

Uh oh – it’s Friday the 13th! In the words of the great Michael Scott, “I’m not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.” Be sure to walk around ladders and step over any cracks in the sidewalk (your mother will thank you). Additionally, if you spill any salt shakers today, throw salt over the LEFT shoulder, not the right. The only source of good fortune you’ll have today will come from this article’s wine recommendation: the Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino. Grown in legendary Tuscany, this wine immediately gives off notes of cherry and fresh fruit upon tasting it. It also pairs exceptionally well with steak and rich fish. Just don’t share a bottle with anyone named Voorhees.

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.
