Red Wine

Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2016, Tuscany D.O.C.G., Italy: Caparzo 2016 Brunello Di Montalcino is made from 100% Sangiovese sourced from vineyards located in the northern and southern Montalcino Appellation. Produced by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini and winemaker Massimo Bracalente. Look for dark sweet cherry, crushed raspberry, dried fine herbs and mineral notes on this full-bodied Brunello. Tannins are rich and grippy. Good now, better in 2023. An excellent cellaring candidate for 15-plus years. Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: rich tomato sauce and pasta dishes, full-bodied meat dishes.

Sparkling Wine

Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Brut Gold Champagne, Champagne A.C., France: This elegant sparkling wine from Champagne comes in lacquered bottle and gift box -- very blingy package that would make Jay-Z forget the spat with Beyonce's sister Solange. A superb Champagne that's crisp, toasty and robust. Good acidity for shellfish. Pricey yes, but they're throwing in the gold for free ;) Gold Champagne food pairings: lightly spiced curry dishes, lamb stew, white turkey meat, fish tacos. 438820 12% XD 1500 mL $739.95 Score: 94/100. February 2022. Top Rated Sparkling Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
