Winter wines to keep you warm

Winter wines to keep you warm | Brunello wine | Scoop.it

Fueled by his passion for creating wines that reflected the Montalcino terroir, Giovanni Neri founded his winery in 1971, and his son Giacomo continues his work today. The grapes used for this wine hail from the Neris’ "Le Cetine" vineyard in southern Montalcino. This wine is a blend of 95 percent Sangiovese Grosso (one of the Sangiovese’s many clones) and 5 percent Colorino, a Tuscan red grape known for its ability to impart deep, dark color. On the nose, aromas of red fruit and violets predominate and are followed on the palate by robust flavors of dark cherry, plum and spice. A delightfully food-friendly acidity and supple tannins round out this gem.
