This Italian superstar is worthy of the fanfare. BRUNO boasts bold cherry, plum and wild berry flavours layered with notes of dried herb, vanilla, tobacco and spice. Firm velvety tannin, well-balanced acidity and a long luscious finish.
BEHIND THE NAME BRUNO Though it now refers to the style of wine, locals originally called the Sangiovese grape ‘Brunello’ which roughly translates to ‘little dark one’; it is derived from the Italian word for brown – bruno. Brunello is one of Italy’s – and the world’s – most revered red wines. When you look at icons of art and culture through history and present day, some of the greatest are often known by a single name. And so Bruno, the root of the Brunello moniker and a proper name itself, seemed a fitting name for this singular sensation.

HOMEMADE WINE ICE CREAM
A wide variety of wines can be used for this recipe. Ideally, you should opt for a wine that has a sweet and fruity flavour. If you want the ice cream to have a nice pink colour, go for a red.
Whichever one you choose, you will need a 1 cup serving of wine (which leaves quite a bit for you to enjoy while the ice cream freezes!).
Since we're preparing ice cream, you will want to chill the wine so that everything remains nice and cool. You can either chill the wine bottle in a fridge or ice bucket for a little while, or stick it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Along with the wine, you will also need:
2 cups of heavy whipping cream (35%)
2 tablespoons of corn starch
2 tablespoons of dry milk powder
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1.5 cups of pureed mixed berries (use strawberries and raspberries to ensure a deep pink colour)
5 drops of vanilla extract.
Pour the cream into a bowl and use a hand mixer to thoroughly whip it. This should take 1 – 2 minutes to do; you can stop when it is thick and fluffy.
In another bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the berries and use a whisk or spoon to stir everything together. This should also take 1 – 2 minutes, after which the solid ingredients should be almost completely dissolved into the wine.
Add this wine mixture and the berries to the whipped cream. Once again, use the hand mixer to combine everything well.
Then all you need to do is pour this mixture into a container and allow it to sit in your freezer overnight. The following day, your ice cream will be ready!
