Classic and traditional are two necessary, if barely adequate adjectives to deascribe Brunello Biondi – Santi. Others could be sumptuous, elegant, memorable, extraordinary and long-living. Useless to beat around the bush, this is a magnificent red with few equals in the world and the proof is in the company vault, which still holds bottles of numerous historical vintages. Not a Brunello di Montalcino, but “the” Brunello di Montalcino.
“This is so transparent and beautiful with clarity. Cherry, plum, strawberry, and berry character with some stone and orange. It’s full-bodied and very linear and round with balance and refinement. The tannins are fine and very powdery in texture. Excellent depth. Ripe, yet so energetic. Fresh, vivid and round”
