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.
“Driven by fresh acidity that remains firm and taut, this wine reveals a dark garnet color and mid-weight concentration. The bouquet presents a careful succession of dried berry, forest floor and spice aromas that builds in intensity as the wine warms in the glass. The wine hits the palate with immediate brilliance and sparkle. This bottle is at its drinking prime right now. It’s a true beauty.”
