Lagrein is a grape native to Trentino-Alto Adige, where the high altitudes and excellent temperature variation around Lake Caldaro combine to create a rich red wine with peppery notes, excellent for the wintry dishes of this Alpine region and whatever you’re eating to stay warm.
Brunello di Montalcino
with Robert Scibelli, DWS
TONIGHT, 6:30 p.m., $95
In recent years, Brunello di Montalcino has become one of Italy’s hottest and most talked-about appellations. In the 1960s, there were literally a handful of producers of Brunello. Today, they number in the hundreds. The growth can be attributed in part to the attention the appellation has received from the American wine press. Brunello lore has grown also thanks to a string of excellent and historic vintages in the 1990s as well as fantastic harvests like the 2000 and 2001.
