Tenuta Greppo Biondi-Santi-Riservia-Sangiovese-1995-750mL

SKU: 8612
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1 day

Biondi Santi remains a beacon for traditionally made Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino. The Greppo vineyards of the Biondi Santi family date back to the 1800s. Clemente Santi, nephew of Giorgio Santi, was the first to create red wines suitable for ageing, and his oenological techniques learnt through agriculture, chemistry, and science were far more advanced than those of his peers.

Clemente’s knowledge was passed on to his nephew Ferruccio Biondi Santi, who skilfully continued to run the Greppo estate, and managed to keep production running after the First World War. In 1932 he was described as ‘the inventor of Brunello’.

The estate has been passed down through the family to this day, and is currently managed by Franco Biondi Santi, along with the help of his two children, who will eventually take on the business themselves.

“Of extraordinary quality, this Riserva is the child of an exceptional vintage. The acidity and the linear structure which characterized the wine when it was released have permitted it to defy time and develop into the distinct, surprisingly generous and intense Brunello di Montalcino it is today.”

— Jacopo Biondi Santi

“Where would Italy be without the great old wines of Biondi Santi? The Tuscan family whose wine bears its name was the first to prove to the world that Italian wines deserve to be compared to the best in the world.”

— James Suckling

“Today there are well over 200 producers of Brunello di Montalcino, and remarkably few of them make wine in the image of Biondi Santi.”

— Jancis Robinson

The Wine Advocate

The 1995 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva opens to a dark garnet appearance and shows more visible concentration compared to the other library selection vintages presented at this tasting. The bouquet is broad and far reaching in character with dried blackberry and plum followed by savory tobacco and spice. This vintage is fleshy, rich and powerful. It offers balanced tertiary aromas, but they are not the protagonist, and that sense of impeccable balance serves as a measure of how well this wine has held up over time.
