Italy Pieve Santa Restituta Gaja Brunello di Monttalcino Sugarille Broked 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

The parish church, or "Pieve," of Santa Restituta stands on the winery property and gives it its name; the Sugarille vineyard was first recorded in the Pieve's inventory in 1547. The unique position and soil structure of the Sugarille vineyard--calcareous clay with a gently sloping southern exposure--give this wine an expressive, powerful character. This is a very special terroir, producing outstanding, long-aging single-vineyard Brunello. Rich, complex aromas of ripe fruit (plums and wild cherries), violets and hints of cloves and tobacco. Length/Type of Fermentation: Three weeks in stainless steel tanks. Length/Type of Aging: One year in barriques and one year in large oak casks, followed by at least two years of bottle aging. Grape Variety/Varieties: 100% Sangiovese Alcohol Level: 14%

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
