Producer

Biondi Santi

It is difficult to talk about Brunello di Montalcino without mentioning Biondi-Santi. Indeed, Brunello di Montalcino owes its entire existence and reputation to one man – Ferruccio Biondi-Santi. Now in the hands of seventh generation winemaker Jacopo Biondi-Santi, the family continues to produce wines of extraordinary quality, noted for their finesse and incomparable longevity. Found in the heart of Montalcino, the Tenuta Greppo estate consists of 25 hectares of vines cultivated on stone and marl-rich soils, which are ideal for growing Sangiovese Grosso. Maintaining a non-interventionist approach in the cellar, namely the use of native yeasts and ageing in large neutral oak casks, the estate’s distinctive terroir can be expressed to its fullest, highlighting the unique characteristics long associated with Biondi-Santi’s wines. Still to this day, they remain the benchmark for traditional Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino.

Region

Montalcino

Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one. This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine to create a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually released approximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination of Riserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
