Wine of the Week: 2009 Tenute Silvio Nardi Rosso di Montalcino

Montalcino enjoyed a very good vintage in 2009, and this pretty Rosso di Montalcino from Tenute Silvio Nardi shows why. Bright and youthful, with a taste of dark cherries and spice, this junior Brunello makes delicious drinking now ― or a few years from now.

Pull the cork on a bottle for a bowl of pasta fagioli, a rustic pasta dish, simple roast chicken or grilled pork chops.
