Tasting Note:

That austere Biondi Santi style coupled with the generosity of vintage. Quite a combination. Great warmth, ripeness of fruit and generosity, notes of red cherry, cherry stone, fresh raspberry and a hint of fruit liqueur. Structured but handsome and fine-tuned. From the historic and legendary Biondi Santi estate that pioneered Sangiovese in Montalcino. Their first vintage was 1888. Winemaking is staunchly traditional. Only natural, wild yeasts are used for fermentation and ageing is for three years in large Slavonian oak casks. Famous for their austerity in youth, Biondi Santi can, however, prove to be magical bottles with age.
