A Super Tuscan Red is Great with Entrecôte au Poivre

One of our favourite steak recipes is Entrecôte au Poivre from Supercook.

Sirloin steak is coated in crushed black peppercorns and a brandy and cream sauce is poured over. We served the steaks with mushrooms and croquet potatoes. Superb.

We opened a bottle of Selvascura Principe Strozzi Toscana 2010, a full-bodied Italian red from the Sunday Times Wine Club.  This S2015-01-14 18.31.28uper Tuscan wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

We detected black fruit aromas on the nose followed by black fruits and cherry sweetness on the palate.  There was a spicy finish with good acidity.

A very enjoyable mouthful and great with the steak.
