As it clings to its rocky hilltop, the medieval village of Montalcino is a most picturesque vista of Tuscany. It's also the center for one of Italy's most magnificent reds - Brunello di Montalcino. These are collectors' wines that age for years and are often steeply priced. Father and son Marco and Jacopo Bacci make their fair share of them at their Renieri estate, receiving an impressive 89 points from Wine Advocate for their 2008. Lamiata is from that same winemaking team. Minute yields from steep slopes plus long cask ageing add up to a Brunello of terrific richness and length. Save for your finest red meat dishes - venison, boeuf en croûte, lamb. Open early and decant.
