Ruby Slippers

The Burchino Estate is in the village of Terriccola. Their 37 hectares of vineyards in the Pisan hills of Chianti are on some of the best land in the Chianti Area.

Tenuta di Burchino IL Burchino 2010 Toscana is a Toscana made up of a perfect 85% Sangiovese – 10% Cabernet – 5%Merlot blend. With floral and blueberry aromas this medium-bodied red is soft and round on the palate. Balanced with good acidity and flavors of cherries, berries and earth makes this wine a nice pairing for any grilled red meat, especially beef. James Suckling gave this Tuscan wine 93pts.

    Love this review and this bottle seems like it would go great with a steak. Do you have any wine pairing reccomendations for Salmon?

    • Thanks for the comment I’m “Old school” with my pairings for fish. I found a nicely priced Chardonnay that WS gave 90 pts and is around $17. Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2016 Indian Wells. It should be easy to find. Cheers
