Tenute Silvio Nardi 2011 Brunello Di Montalcino, $38.24-$49.99, 92+ points, poured a rainbow of ruby and garnet reds with a broad clear wine ring and heavy draping.
Aromas needed some air before the treasures of roses, leather, toasty oak, and red cherry could be appreciated.
Near full-bodied with bright acidity and fine grainy tannins delivered flavors of cherry fruit, black tea, and truffles with a hint of tobacco.
Finished very long on the trailing palate and a warm 14.5% alcohol inspirited spiciness.
Paired perfectly with my spaghetti in a heavy beef marinara sauce.
