We have a special fondness for Brunello that goes back to our first European trip together in 2002. We visited my good friend, Claudia, in Venice and then spent some time in Tuscany. One of our Tuscany days was spent in Montalcino, and was such a perfect day that it led us to coin the term “Montalcino moment” for wonderfully serendipitous events.
But that’s a story for another time. Fast forward to today, and Brunello de Montalcino remains near and dear to us. Unfortunately, throughout the years, Brunellos have been outside our price range except for special occasions.
