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 from 1888 till today and each production is extremely limited. Riserva is traditionally produced with grapes coming from only the oldest vineyards, of more than 25 years of age. At the center 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.
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a truly majestic wine.
The bouquet is packed with intense fruity notes of blackberries, pomegranate and plums, intertwined with scents of Mediterranean herbs such as thyme, rosemary and sage, rising from a carpet of the forest floor.
On the palate, the wine seduces with exuberant charm and caressing sweetness.
The youthful tannins reveal their immense structure and contribute to creating a distinctive sensation of freshness which leads us towards a long-lingering, savory finish.
