by Biondi-Santi

Biondi-Santi has been producing world-class Brunello for decades, establishing its practices before the turn of the 20th century. Indeed, a young Queen Elizabeth enjoyed the 1955 vintage.

The estate has been regarded for years to employ experimental techniques, with great drive and fervour to improve winemaking practice, whilst nonetheless preserving the tradition that has generated so much appreciation, and so many accolades, for Biondi Santi.

This wine in particular is the gold-standard for Brunello di Montalcino. A wine of great finesse and grace, great structure and aromatic complexity. The palate is bold and rich, finishing with immense length. It is a must-have in the cellar.

Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Biondi-Santi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino exudes dark, velvety fruit and concentration while maintaining the signature elegance, suppleness and lithe personalty that distinguishes the iconic Il Greppo estate. I found this new release to be quite distinctive and exquisitely beautiful, setting it apart from many of the past vintages we are most familiar with. This 2015 edition is dark, exuberant and bold, but precise, focused and sharp as well. It will live for years in your cellar, but tasted now in its infancy, the wine shows blackberry, dried cherry, plum and dark cassis. Those dark fruit tones segue to a rich presentation of tar, spice, earth, tobacco and sweet balsam herb. The bouquet offers seamless and smooth transitions. This warm and sunny growing season favored richness and phenolic weight. Wines from Biondi-Santi are made for the long haul, and the fresh acidity that characterizes this estate is the principle reason why. However, I'd argue that this wine from 2015 will evolve over the years not only thanks to the freshness but more so thanks to the important structure of this solid and profound wine.
