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.
