Pizza demands juicy, fresh wine and time and time again, I find myself reaching for anything Cristina Brunori makes. A world-class producer of Tuesday nighters, her old vines, mineral soil, and the temperate winds of the Adriatic all help produce vibrantly flavored grapes. She says her job is to not mess up what Mother Nature is so good at making.
Brunori wines always represent great bang for the buck. Very rarely can find such pristine fruit and food friendliness in an under $20 bottle of wine be found. But the Brunori family makes them in spades.
Cristina and her family grow Sangiovese and Montepulciano in the Marches, a spectacularly beautiful spot in Italy right on the Adriatic coast. It’s an area often missed by American tourists, too far from Tuscany, Venice or Rome to ever make it there in the same trip. But, the landscape is beautiful, the fish and produce out of this world. The pizza is not too bad either.
