Brunello di Montalcino - Tenuta Greppo DOCG Riserva 1995
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 settling into a groove, with mint, cherry, plum, leather, iron, earth and tobacco flavors. Though firm, the tannins are well-behaved and beginning to meld nicely with the ripe fruit and rich texture. Remains vibrant and long on the seemingly endless aftertaste”
