You need some patience to discover this fine, ageing wine which built the reputation of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation. More info
From an appellation that has known times of great success thanks to the domain that created it, this Brunello di Montalcino has turned out to be a fine, cellaring and gastronomic wine. Its ruby appearance makes way for a bouquet that takes time to unveil all its complexity. We find here varied notes of red fruit, flowers, tobacco and mint. The palate, noble and elegant, reveals a silky texture that will become yet more refined in time. It is best to be patient, as this wine will easily keep for 20-40 years in the cellar.
Without its Biondi Santi domain, the Brunello di Montalcino appellation may not have become what it is today: a prestigious, Italian winemaking area with an international air. Known for the excellent cellaring potential of its wine, this domain's reputation began to take off during the 19th century. The owner at the time, Clemente Santi, saw his Sangiovese grapes – a variety he had studied and worked on for many years – prized during the Paris Exhibition in 1867. Time flows, as does the wine, and the commendations haven't dried up either. Enthusiasts from the world over snap up these crus because of their elegance and longevity.
