"Franco Biondi Santi"
It is a rare phenomenon that wine can trace its origins to a single man. Brunello di Montalcino, however, owes its existence to the creative genius of Clemente Santi and his nephew Ferruccio Biondi Santi who in the eighteen hundreds started producing barrel-aged single-varietal wines in Montalcino, betting on the extraordinary quality potential of Sangiovese Grosso.
Since 1888, the first vintage of Brunello in history, Biondi-Santi has continued to produce wines renowned for their elegance and extraordinary longevity.
A meeting between fragrant fruity notes and balsamic spices, the bouquet of the 2017 Brunello is initially rather shy, gradually revealing the breadth and depth of its aromatic elegance. Among the red-berried fruits, the notes of red cherry stand out, accompanied by intriguing hints of white pepper, dried tobacco leaves, licorice root and citrus peel.
On the palate its fruity heart is surprisingly fragrant and sports an enviable balance between finely textured tannins and refreshing acidity. The finish is savory, long and enveloping with slight hints of thyme and rosemary.
