In Bloomberg.com’s roundup, the country’s best Sommeliers shared their “20 Must Drink wines” for this fall. We are honored Charlie Bird’s Robert Bohr selected Il Poggione’s Brunello 2011 as his pick.
As Robert notes: “When the weather gets cooler, and I eat more hearty pasta ragus and braised meats, the wines I drink get a little richer, too. Brunello from Il Poggione always delivers. It’s an elegant, classically styled Tuscan red with bright red fruit, sexy, earthy aromas, and firm but smooth tannins. It’s a sure bet and also good value in a touristy region of Italy, where it’s easy to make some wine mistakes.”
In honor of his suggestion, here is one of our favorite fall recipes: Picci Pasta.
