Natalie's Score: 91/100

Il grappolo Sassocheto 2015 Brunello Di Montalcino is produced from 20-plus year-old vines in the south-facing Piano Nero vineyard with galestro, alberese and sandstone soils. This 100% Sangiovese is fragrant with sweet dried tobacco leaf, sous bois and balsamic aromas on the nose; dry, full-bodied and juicy on the palate with ripe dark fruits, dried cherry, savoury herbs and anise spice flavours long and smooth on the palate. So easy to love. Pour with venison burgers or aged cheeses and it would also be perfect with an osso buco. Drink or hold.

Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: rich vegetarian lasagne, ribs, grilled pork chops.
