Wine of the Day: Ruffino Greppone Mazzi Brunello di Montalcino

Power with poise, strength with softness, elegance with rusticity, Ruffino Greppone Mazzi Brunello di Montalcino ($65) showcases the power of Sangiovese, known locally as Brunello, to create a complex, full-bodied wine with classic Tuscan character. Hot dry days, give way to cool nights thanks to breezes off the Tyrrhenian Sea, ensuring grapes maintain a note of acidity and freshness, with a strong, tannic backbone. Red cherry, black plum, leather, tobacco, and dark chocolate leap from aromatic wine, pairing with any braised or stewed meat or game dish, or a hearty bowl of pasta and gravy.
