Biondi-Santi
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Annata 2012

TASTING NOTES

“Bright red. Fresh, complex aromas of sweet red berries, pomegranate, sour red cherry, orange peel, violet and brown spices. Bright and juicy, with building density and multilayered flavors of sour red cherries and raspberry, complicated by a hint of peach. Finishes long and clean with strong mineral and floral nuances. This is an extremely fruity and remarkably ready to drink Brunello for this property…still, despite its obvious upfront charm, this has real structure and depth and will age well. Easily one of the top three Brunellos of the vintage.” Antonio Galloni 94pt

Biondi-Santi

Biondi-Santi remains a beacon for traditionally made Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino. The Greppo vineyards of the Biondi Santi family date back to the 1800s. Clemente Santi, nephew of Giorgio Santi, was the first to create red wines suitable for ageing. The estate has been passed down through the family to this day. Their Brunellos are not designed for drinking in a hurry, instead, they are for “sipping”- pour out about an ounce or two of Biondi Sandi in the glass, let it aerate, take a sip and slowly unfolds all the glory and beauty of aged Brunellos.
