Wine and steak
The best wine for steak

When we are in front of a tasty meat dish, for example, a juicy Florentine steak, we must make a careful choice on which is the right wine to drink. What is in our opinion the best wine to pair with a steak? Try to guess!

If you are thinking about a good Tuscan red wine, your answer is correct! In fact, with a tasty steak (whether it is a Florentine steak or another type of cut, but meat dishes in general), Brunello di Montalcino is the wine that goes perfectly with it. Gladly, we dare offer you a Brunello di Montalcino Docg 2015, best if it comes from Corte dei Venti.

So red wine is the best to combine with a nice Chianina steak because its tannins perfectly interact with the proteins of the meat, restoring a pleasant taste between food and drink: a good choice is to combine a Brunello di Montalcino with meat but it’s very good also another type of red such as Rosso di Montalcino DOC Corte dei Venti 2018 or a Silvana IGT Corte dei Venti 2016, which combines a blend of Sangiovese grosso (60%) and a percentage of (30%) Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Therefore, we have noticed the perfect marriage between Chianina meat and Tuscan red, which are two high-level products of Made in Italy. This is a must when we talk about meat dishes and glasses of wine, which lean on matching chemical and organoleptic sides, but it also has deep roots in the culinary tradition and culture of Tuscan cuisine.

That said, it is not excluded that we may try to match other types of wines with steak, but generally, red wines are the best choice, because of their greater presence of tannins that go well with the molecular compounds of the meat, making pleasant, intense, tasty and round our taste experience,
