Food Pairings for Brunello Ciacci Riserva
Organoleptic characteristics: (14,5% by vol.) the bouquet is intense and complex: fruit-forward, spicy, toasted, balsamic, lightly floral. Vibrant notes of blueberry and sour black cherry are well tied into scents of vanilla, cacao beans and leather. Warm, well structured, balanced with firm tannins and a long finish. A Brunello that can be refined in bottle for years and with a very long life. Service: open an hour before pouring and serve at 18°C (64,4° F) in large crystal wine glasses. Bottles should be kept in a horizontal position, far from light sources and protected from both extremes and changes in temperature.
Notes: Fermentation and refinement: in stainless steel and glass concrete vats, temperature-controlled via cooling plates and jackets. Ageing: roughly 4 years in 20-30 hl Slavonian oak barrels, followed by over 12 months of bottle ageing.
