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

Produced from Sangiovese Grosso BBS11 vines of at least 25 years of age from Tenuta Greppo. Brilliant ruby red. Despite a tannic frame still perceptible, its fruit takes over with black pepper and spicy hints. This cuvée already gives us a lot of fun. A wine of future with a nice balance. Harmonic, it will grow slowly but surely. Very long-lasting persistence.
