Tasting Notes

"Beautifully balanced, this opens with alluring scents of wild berry, rose, baking spice and whiffs of chopped herb. Seamlessly combining ripe fruit and the firm's trademark finesse, the bright elegantly structured palate delivers juicy wild cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and a hint of black tea framed in polished tannins and fresh acidity. It's already tempting but the best is yet to come."

The Producer

Biondi Santi

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.
