The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

This Rosso di Montalcino D.O.C. from Castelli Martinozzi is particularly forward in both rich aroma and taste – making it a perfect accompaniment to the traditional meat, game and pasta dishes of the Siena area.

 

To be specific, I would enjoy this with a Rosemary basted leg of lamb, ‘Bistecca Fiorentina’, Tuscan sausages or a delicious plate of pappardelle pasta with slow cooked wild boar ragu. To recreate these tried and true food pairings together is to experience a taste of the rich medieval and renaissance nostalgia of where this amazing wine originates from.

 

If you’d like to appreciate this wine in a simpler setting, try it out with some Aged pecorino or Parmigiano Reggiano cheese on herbaceous crackers.

To get the best out of this wine, decant for a few hours prior to tasting.
