The Brunello presented at the tasting comes from a vintage that the protection consortium had already rewarded with full marks at the event Benvenuto Brunello, where it had given important signals to all the tasters present: we are talking about the now legendary 2010 vintage.
The Brunello di Montalcino from Scuderia Italia, with almost pastel red tones, presents itself to the nose with a very important balance of wild berries, among all the currants, up to the spices like pepper and cloves, to close with a smoky note of sweet tobacco, from which a slight hint of lavender emerges in the finish.
A “Mediterranean sense of smell” that accompanies a meaty and substantial drink, with a savory imprint and that acidity, combined with minerality, which allows us to think of it as still very long-lived or, indeed, from a collection.
The so elegant tannins offer a softness to the palate that persists in its harmony of aromas that offer a set of rare balance.
A Brunello so complete in its balance that we can match it with dishes that start from barbecued cooking until arriving at stewed red meat game, for a pairing that makes the protagonist himself and the most appreciated guest at the table.
Just as a winning stable selects its champions and raises them with extreme attention, so Scuderia Italia makes a careful choice among the culinary excellences present in and around Italy.The oenologists and experts of Scuderia Italia establish a relationship of close collaboration with the producers, in order to gather under a single brand jewels for the palate that only Italy can boast.
