Background

Biondi Santi is a renowned Tuscan producer known for it’s Brunello di Montalcino. Brunello di Montalcino owes its existence to Ferrucio Biondi-Santi. After many generations of winemakers, the Biondi-Santi family continues to produce elegant wines to be enjoyed over many years. Ferrucio’s grandson Franco took over running the estate from his father and maintained the traditions set out by his father and grandfather. Jacopo Biondi Santi is the fifth generation in this legendary line. The family continues to use traditional viticulture methods which highlights the wine’s characteristics.

Tasting Notes

The grapes were healthy, ripe, rich in colour with thick skins. The must was rich in sugar, extracts, and acidity. Vinification in red under controlled temperature. Produced from Sangiovese Grosso BBS11 vines between 10-25 years of age from Tenuta Greppo. Intense ruby red. A graceful scent of citrus peel with nuances of withered rose, spice and fresh red fruits. There is a surprising note of red fruit that appears, cherry is dominant and red berries notes pop up in the background. Tannins are not completely melted and the structure is deep. Long-lasting persistence. James Suckling – 95/100, Wine Enthusiast – 96/100, Jancis Robinson – 18/20 (W. Speller), Gambero Rosso-3 bicchieri
