Which one reminds you of your dad more?
1. He is a sophisticated collector, with a cellar full of vintage wine. He enjoys talking about wine flavors and nuances over a perfectly paired dinner.
2. He prefers the simpler things in life. He likes to drink a few glasses of "red wine" a night, and is happy as long as it goes down smooth while being surrounded by family.
Father’s Day Wine Gifts
The only place to start is with Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most suave wines in the world. Brunello, made from 100% Sangiovese, is loved for its depth and complexity, much like your father. From the Tuscany region of Italy, it carries the country’s top wine designation, DOCG.
The sophisticated wine drinker will want to age it for decades, but they can enjoy it now, and more so when surrounded by loved ones. Given the pandemic, there is no better time to drink great wine than the present. While Brunello is wonderful with food, savoring it on its own is a unique experience.
Try the astounding two-pack of the highly rated 2015 and 2016 vintages from Sassetti Livio Pertimali or the 2016 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino. If you drink these now, you’ll long remember Father’s Day 2021.

Read on to get the perfect gift for your dad:
2015 in Brunello was called a "best ever" vintage and a "historical year for Brunello & nobody should miss." Twelve months later 2016 was crowned the "greatest vintage ever" alongside the 2015 and labeled as a "well-muscled black stallion in its prime."
"A truly satisfying yet also youthful and balanced expression. The 2016 Tenuta di Sesta should only require a few years to come into focus, and it will provide a long and open drinking window from there on out." ~93 Vinous Media
Sophie has created one of the finest expressions of Chardonnay from the Mâconnais, ripe, full-flavored wines with exciting and bracing acidity.

The base wine is a late harvest Sauvignon Blanc from Happy Canyon. Producer, Greg Martellotto, imbued a proprietary blend of botanicals, herbs, citrus rinds, and cinchona in high proof grape distilled spirit. This is bound to impress any vermouth lover.
