Saturday, 04th February 2017 03:00pm - 05:00pm

Brunello di Montalcino has become one of the most sought after wine appellations in Italy. Often regarded as the ‘other’ iconic red wine of Tuscany after the Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino has more of a fleshy texture, rich in the indulgent aromas and flavours of blackberry, black cherry and chocolate. Often compared with the Pinot Noirs of Burgundy with its smooth tannins and ripe, fruity character, reached after a long ageing process that takes more than 4 years after the initial grape harvest. The lunch will be paired with an exquisite and carefully considered menu curated by our Head Chef, Damian Clisby. A discount will be available for orders placed at the event.
