What is one of the best wines to go with Dad’s perfectly grilled steak? A big, bold delicious Italian Brunello di Montalcino.

The 2007 Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi “Castelgiocondo” Brunello di Montalcino is the perfect Father’s Day gift for your husband or father to enjoy with his big fat, juicy grilled steak, braised meats, or leg of lamb.

Brunello di Montalcino is a red Italian wine produced in the vineyards surrounding the town of Montalcino, which is located south of Florence in the Tuscany wine region. Brunello di Montalcino wines are elegant, bold and well balanced. They are made from Sangiovese Grosso, a clone of the Sangiovese grape, which produces wines with massive structure. Founded in the 14th century, Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi is one the leading wine producers of Tuscany and is still a family-owned company today.

The 2007 Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi “Castelgiocondo” Brunello di Montalcino is a delicious combination of red and black fruits; blackberry, cherry, red currant and plum. The wine is also complex with notes of black pepper, tobacco and clove with round tannins and a long, lingering finish. To say that I enjoyed drinking this delicious Italian wine is a drastic understatement. It’s the kind of wine that makes you sob a little when the bottle is empty.

For only $69.99, you can buy Dad a wine that he will truly sip, savory and enjoy with his delicious Father’s Day grilling meats. Click here to find where you can purchase this delicious Italian super star wine near you!
