Castello di Ama San Lorenzo Chianti 2015

Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate rates it 95 points and says, "You do feel that extra density, intensity and complexity within the very fiber of this beautiful wine."

And I have a recipe to share for the perfect dish to serve with it!

In a food processor, combine 3 tablespoons good quality olive oil, 1 tablespoon kosher salt and 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary and pulse until it has formed a paste.

Grill a porterhouse steak to just shy of medium rare (be sure to start with the steak on its edges to caramelize the fat, and stand it on the bone for a minute or two to warm the meat from the inside). Remove the steak from the grill and place on a cutting board. Rub the steak all over with the olive oil/salt/rosemary paste and let it stand for 10 minutes. Slice the steak against the grain and serve.

Simple, but molto deliciozo!
