2015 Biondi Santi Greppo Brunello di Montalcino

2015 Biondi Santi Greppo Brunello di Montalcino

€229.95
 
Established in the mid-1800s, Biondi-Santi is one of Italy’s greatest historic estates. While some might argue that Barolo is the king of Italian wines, when looking at the extraordinary balance, elegance, and longevity of Biondi-Santi’s wines, there is a compelling argument that it is Brunello that deserves the crown. Biondi-Santi’s wines are aged in large, old Slavonian oak casks, which act as neutral vessels rather than transformative structures. The results can be staunch, tannic beasts in youth, but with patience, they can evolve into some of the most compelling wines you’ll ever taste. Underbrush, ripe berry, new leather, and Mediterranean herb aromas slowly take shape in the glass. Showing youthful tension, the vibrant palate delivers red cherry, pomegranate, white pepper, and pipe tobacco notes framed by bright acidity and taut, refined tannins. Drink from 2021 to 2031.
