The famous hill town of Montalcino is a small medieval village located about 564 metres (1,850 ft) above sea level in the province of Siena in Tuscany. The wine district is centered to the northeast of the village in densely wooden and hilly terrain. Monte Amiata, the highest peak in Southern Tuscany, provides a sheltering influence from the southeast and tempers the region's climate and rainfall. Montalcino also has one of the warmest and driest climates in Tuscany with the grapes in the area ripening up to a week earlier than in nearby Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Chianti Classico. 

This Brunello 'normale' is from the Wine Advocate 98 point-rated 2010 Vintage. The color is dark ruby red, and the bouquet is intense with warm, spicy red fruits and and balsamic overtones. Full-bodied, ripe and well structured on the palate with a long finish. Serve with a fine roast leg of lamb with rosemary, roast squab with truffles or the famous dish of the region: bistecca alla fiorentina, Tuscan-style steak. More rustic dishes such as Tuscan sausages and beans or pappardelle with wild boar (cinghiale) or hare (lepre) sauce would also work very well with younger Brunellos. Cheese should be kept simple, especially with older vintages. Aged pecorino or parmesan would be ideal.
