"The 2011 Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine made in a elegant, refined, traditional style. As this Brunello slowly unwinds, it eventually begins to show characteristics of cherries and mixed red wild berries followed by nuances of dried floral, minerals and mint. On the palate this is well-structured, impressing with its beautiful fine-grained, silky texture and remarkable finesse which follows through into the finish. The 2011 is an age-worthy Brunello which shows excellent potential for a long future, however today it is still quite reserved, and will demand at least another five years of bottle age."

Produced for the first time in 1888, the Biondi-Santi Riserva was the first Brunello di Montalcino in history, and even today it is an extraordinary event when a new vintage of Riserva is announced at Tenuta Greppo, the Biondi-Santi main estate. Renowned for its extraordinary longevity, this rare wine has been released only 40 times and each production is extremely limited.
At the centre of the cellar at Tenuta Greppo there is a dark room, hidden away from the world, dedicated specifically to Riserva. It is 'La Storica', the estate wine library where Biondi-Santi carefully refines the bottles of each Riserva vintage ever produced. Here the bottles lie neatly stacked in small cells divided by vintage, 'naked', wearing only a drop of bees wax to seal the cork and minimize oxydization. The Riserva is removed from 'La Storica' only when it is sold.
It's important to remember that taste is subjective, and personal preferences play a significant role.
