3135 ITALIAN BRUNELLO
Bold, yet supple, the ultra-ripe cherry and currant-like fruit gives way to a hint of tar and cracked black pepper, cedar, whiffs of licorice, leather, plums and black cherries, followed by a richly tannic finish. Its firm backbone of acids and tannins make it work well with rich and spicy foods as well as hard cheeses such as Asiago and Pecorino Romano.
Winexpert’s Selection International Wine Series sources product from the world’s great wine producing nations. The premium wine kits showcase the styles that made each region famous. Due to the timing of the various regional harvest seasons and the availability of product meeting Winexpert’s stringent quality control standards, varieties are available as supply dictates. They are packaged in an aseptic, nitrogen purged bag placed in a very attractive outer box. Each kit makes six gallons.
The addition of a grapeskin pack enhances not only the body, mouth-feel, tannin and color of the wine, it does so without increasing the need for extra aging. These wines drink very well soon after bottling, and will improve on the same scale as regular Selection Internatlonal: 6 - 12 months to achieve a high peak of flavor, and improvement for several years under good cellaring. 18 L wine kits.
