It also optimums with different kind of cheeses: Aged cheeses, Parmesan cheese, Tuscan pecorino cheese. It goes perfectly with international dishes with meat sauces or structured.

“A chewy and rich wine with loads of chocolate from milk to dark chocolate. Full body and intense. Tannins. Needs loads of time to soften due to the acid, fruit, and wood balance. Squared off tannins. Muscular. Try in 2017.”
International Wine Report, 93 points
“The 2010 Vitanza Brunello di Montalcino is an excellent showing. This refined Brunello dazzles with gorgeous aromas of dark cherries, blackberries, dusty leather, floral, spices and mineral notes emerging from the glass. This full-bodied Brunello shows wonderful structure and depth along with excellent balance all the way through the polished finish. Another outstanding wine from Rosalba Vitanza. (Best 2016-2027).” – JD
