Brunello & Pinot Noir
Brunello di Montalcino is made with a local Tuscan type of Sangiovese called Brunello. It’s noted for having thicker-skinned berries and, because of this, Brunello produces wines with exceptionally bold fruit flavors, high tannin, and high acidity.
Pinot Noir is one of the best red wines available, but what makes it so special? Pinot Noir is typically a light to medium bodied, fruit-forward red wine that calls Burgundy home. It holds a pleasant spot in the red wine spectrum—not too dry, but certainly not sweet—which is why it's a favorite the world over.
