A wine of fruit and vibrancy, the Biondi-Santi Rosso paves the way for the Brunello. For Biondi-Santi, the Rosso has always been a special wine, following a specific idea of making a red wine that reflects the signature style of our high-altitude vineyards with vibrant freshness and a structure, which permits the wine to age, but which is driven by a distinct fruity character and is thoroughly enjoyable at a young age.
Traditionally, the Rosso is produced from the youngest vines, and from those vineyard plots which underline the fruitiness. It is fermented in cement vats and has an aging in oak which is shorter than that of the Brunello, 12 months.
This wine was originally known as the Biondi-Santi Brunello “white label”, but became the estate’s Rosso in 1983, when the Rosso di Montalcino DOC was established.
A lovely encounter of flowers and red berry fruits, the Rosso di Montalcino 2019 reveals fresh, energetic notes of cherries, blood oranges, pomegranate, violets and honeysuckle, followed by balsamic sensations of kitchen herbs, licorice root and menthol.
The nose and palate are fully aligned as the crunchy tannins and lively acidity blend in with this Rosso’s impressive, levigated fruity core, leading us towards a savory finish with long-lingering mineral notes.
The longer the wine is allowed to breathe in the glass, the more the impressive weight and depth of this marvelous vintage show its character.
