Brunello + Tuscan Food Package

6 Bottle Mixed Case

Brunello + Tuscan Food Package

We are pleased to introduce our next Charlie's Burgers wine and food feature: A celebration of the excellence that is Tuscan food and wine, centering around three fantastic expressions of Brunello from 3 different producers.

Brunello Pack- Six bottles of world-class, 90+ point Brunello from three classic producers.

-2 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016 La Fortuna Italy ($89.95 plus hst per bottle)

From a producer whose name comes from the fact that their inaugural purchase was bolstered by a lucky hand in a card game. Focusing almost exclusively on aging in large Slavonian oak, this is old-school Brunello with rich texture and some of the rustic feel that defines older producers in the area. 100% Sangiovese grosso. This wine opens with fantastic aromatic intensity, showing candied fruit, licorice, cola & dark spice. On the palate, dark fruit, candied fruit and spice slowly fade into a long rich finish. A brilliant expression of Sangiovese from an excellent vintage. 96-James Suckling, 95-Robert Parker.

-2 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016 Mocali Italy ($79.95 plus hst per bottle) 

From a producer we have been working with for over a decade, and one of 25 vignerons who, in 1967, founded the Corsorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino, the collective that pushed for recognition and excellence in production of what was then a nearly-unknown region. This is the most floral and complex of the Brunellos, a beautiful, subtle wine. 100% Sangiovese grosso aged for one year in Slavonian oak and two years in French oak. Mineral, with ripe berry, spicy scents of vanilla, cinnamon & tobacco. Full-bodied & dense with long silky tannins. 93-Robert Parker, 91-James Suckling, 90-Wine Spectator.

-2 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016  Cerbaia di Fabio Pellegrini Tuscany Italy ($89.95 plus hst per bottle)

From a young winemaker who gave up a career in finance to return to the family farm, this is Brunello with supreme elegance and poise, a little more refined than a lot of the older producers, she manages to achieve exquisite balance every year. 100% Sangiovese. A fantastic Brunello in a great vintage. Grapes from one of the most favourable terroirs for Sangiovese in Montalcino. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied with firm but silky tannins. Structured and perfectly balanced. 95-James Suckling, 92-Wine Enthusiast.

The Food

To accompany this range of great bottles, we asked Tuscany’s greatest proponent in Toronto, Alida Solomon, to make us a pack of traditional treats from the region. Alida Solomon’s restaurant; Tutti Matti is Toronto’s greatest tribute to Tuscany. Chef Solomon lived and worked in Montalcino, Tuscany for six years at the hilltop restaurant Boccon di Vino, earning them Michelin recognition. Since its opening in 2002, her Tutti Matti has been lauded by critics and received both local and national awards, including the prestigious 2009 L’Eccio D’Oro for Osteria of the Year (an award previously won by Alain Ducasse). In April 2016, Chef Solomon was awarded a Fellow of the Institute at the 2016 Ontario Hostelry Institute’s Gold Awards, and in 2018 she was awarded the Institute’s Gold Award for Chef. Alida is currently working on Motherland, a documentary filmed in Italy, that celebrates women in wine and food. 

Alida has put together four traditional Tuscan items, handmade in her restaurant, set to transport you to the hills of Montalcino. 

  • Red Pepper Jelly (six ounce jar)
  • Omaggio di Dario Salt  – The classic Dario Cecchini salt blend, an homage to Alida’s friend and mentor, the great Butcher of Tuscany. six ounce jar)
  • Handmade Pinci Pasta – Fresh pasta made by Alida in a classic Tuscan shape. Has a one week shelf life but freezes well. (650 gr)
