I like to think of this place as half a wine blog, but I really have not been writing enough about wine lately. Tonight we are going to try what I think is a new Brunello di Montalcino - Poggio Castagno. I can not find anything about this wine on the web - but the producer seems to be a large commercial concern - so my theory is that it is a new bottling/label, perhaps invented by them as a marketing strategy to cash in on both the popularity and quality of the Brunello name. Why do I think this? Because this is a new release Brunello that was on sale at Esselunga for about €13 (most good Brunello starts at around $40 a bottle!). We will see how it holds up with the roast beef.
