Brunello di Montalcino Reserve DOCG Tenuta Greppo 2015 (750 ml.) - Biondi Santi

Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015 by Biondi Santi represents an icon of winemaking tradition. Truly majestic wine. On the nose the fruit immediately reveals itself to be intense and compact with dark cherry, pomegranate and blood orange, so typical in Biondi-Santi wines, while the notes of Mediterranean scrub release hints of thyme, rosemary and sage. At a later stage, floral sensations are added, of red roses and violets, and then of undergrowth. In the mouth, the wine, seductive and full of charm, spreads over the palate with caressing sweetness, while the pleasantly scratchy tannins highlight its remarkable structure and contribute to creating a beautiful sensation of freshness that cleanses the palate, leading us towards a savory and very long. Longevity: 20-40 years.

Biondi_Santi_870x360.jpg

No other winery in Italy is so intimately linked to its origins, history and to the whole journey of its name as Biondi Santi to Brunello di Montalcino. A story that has its roots in the nineteenth century, with the first evidence of winemaking by Clemente Santi, who devoted much of his life to the study of Sangiovese and who saw his "red wine chosen" - in fact Brunello - at the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1865. A path that has not stopped since then, and which has consecrated the winery as the undisputed leader of the entire area of ​​Ilcinese, an example of tradition to which everyone still today looks with admiration. The wines that come out every year from the Greppo Estate are, in fact, still considered today as some of the world's greatest wines, models of elegance and longevity. With plants that, in some cases, exceed even eighty years of age, the Estate Greppo can now count on a vine extension of twenty-five hectares, in which only large Sangiovese plants meet. The yields per hectare are very low, and are between 30 and 50 quintals, for an annual production that rarely exceeds 80 thousand bottles, including the 10 thousand bottles of Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, produced only in qualitatively exceptional vintages. In the cellar, only the first choice grapes come from vineyards that are at least ten years old for the vintage Brunello, and from plants of over twenty-five years for the Reserve. Then the processing, which begins with destemming, followed by crushing and fermentation, carried out in vats and cement tanks at a controlled temperature. Finally, after malolactic fermentation, aging begins in large Slavonian oak barrels, and finally bottling, which takes place not earlier than four years after the harvest. Few steps, simple, in the sign of the most rigid and essential traditions, for a Brunello, that of Biondi Santi, which meets its secret in its oldest origins, over the centuries renewed from season to season, towards a prestige and a international fame that today do not know limits.

Tenuta Greppo, Viale Greppo, 183 - 53024 Montalcino (SI), Italy
