Brunello di Montalcino Food Pairings

Bistecca alla fiorentina

Brunello di Montalcino is a perfect match for structured and composed dishes thanks to its dry, warm and soft qualities.  This full bodied wine goes great with grilled red meat, and almost mandatory with a Florentine steak.

Brunello’s harmonious body and alcohol content (13.5%) marry well with strong flavors such as game, feathered and furred and especially with wild boar. When serving a complex dish and side dish such as mushrooms or truffles, you are surely on the safe side with a glass of Brunello.

Those who love international cuisine can easily serve a Brunello with any meat or sauce based dish.

Another great pairing is Brunello di Montalcino and cheese. Flavors blend perfectly with strong, mature flavors such as those in Parmesan or Pecorino cheese or aged cheese, enhancing the flavors and taste.

Older vintages of Brunello di Montalcino are also a great match for similar foods.
