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 Annata Brunello is produced from Tenuta Greppo Sangiovese vineyards between 10 and 25 years old and is aged for 36 months in Slavonian oak casks. Characterized by its longevity, the Annata will typically age between 20-40 years. “…the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a stunning edition, with a tight inner core of wild fruit and natural acidity surrounded by elegant tones of blue flower, wild cherry, cured tobacco, balsam herb and camphor ash…mid-weight concentration and an especially fresh and vibrant finish that lasts for many long minutes”. 96+ Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
