Winexpert Private Reserve Bruno Wine Recipe Kit

This is Sangiovese at its best. The latest Winexpert Private Reserve kit's nose shows off aromas of black cherry and plum, teasing notes of leather and sandalwood. On the palate black cherry, black plum, and wild berry flavors take center stage, supported by notes of dried herb, vanilla, tobacco, and spice with hints of earth. Bruno exudes power and finesse with a full body, firm velvety tannin, well-balanced acidity, and a long flavorful finish.

Sweetness: Dry | Body: Full | Oak: Heavy | Alcohol: 14% ABV

More about Brunello Style Wines:

Montalcino, a small hilltop town in Tuscany, is the birthplace of Brunello. Red wines, usually blends, have been produced there since the 14th century; the Brunello style we know today emerged in the late 1800s when one winemaker began vinifying Sangiovese on its own, revolutionizing winemaking in the region. Now, Brunello-style wines are considered the finest expression of the Sangiovese grape and celebrated for their unique combination of bold fruit flavors, high tannin, and high acidity. It is one of Italy’s – and the world’s – most revered red wines.

Italian Brunello Food pairing:

Pair with strong foods that match the wine’s powerful flavor. Try bone-in Tuscan-style steak with fresh herbs, veal parmigiana, rich meaty pasta sauces, earthy mushroom risotto, or strong cheeses like aged pecorino.

Includes bottle labels.

Still in fermenter, so...

I'm not able to review the wine, yet. (The samples I've pulled to test gravity sure make me think it's going to be really nice, though.)

But I do want to make some comments about the Winexpert kit itself.
I've made a number of RJS En Primeur kits in the last few years - Trio Red is our favorite - so I'm really familiar with those kits. The Winexpert Private Reserve kit here is really nice. I like it a little better than the RJS kit.
Both kits have all the ingredients you need and the instructions are both good. But, I liked the instructions for this kit a bit better. To me they read better, have some details where I wanted them, and feel like they were written by someone I could talk to.
It's not a huge difference, but I remember thinking to myself that if all else is the same (price, quality) I might want to shift from the RJS to the Winexpert kits in the future.
