A Sunday with My Cellar...

Hanging out with my good friend Taylor always calls for pulling special treats from the cellar. This particular Sunday was a wine from a stellar year in Tuscany:

1999 Silvio Nardi Brunello de Montalcino: A refined interplay of masculine tobacco and cigar box with feminine notes of dried flower. Tannins are completely resolved, fruit still present, but woven into that trademark Tuscan earthiness. Drinking wonderfully smooth. Wouldn't wait any longer to open it if you have one.

We paired it with these fabulous Italian meats and cheeses. A glorious Sunday indeed! Cheers!
