Biondi Santi is not just a Brunello; enjoying a bottle is an experience.
Few make a better Brunello than Biondi Santi. The winery is a collectible, benchmark producer with representation at auction houses worldwide.
Biondi Santi is known for its depth and structure, attributed to its altitude. Vineyards are 1,400 - 1,600 feet above sea level and produce gorgeous Sangiovese that can age for decades (and decades).
"From a benchmark vintage, the Biondi-Santi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a gorgeous appearance... You almost bite into this wine, and you taste some fine grain linked to the young tannins. That, with the fresh acidity that is the hallmark signature of this estate, guarantees long cellar aging, and I would put my money on this vintage for long-long-term longevity. The fruit is compact and supple with dried cherry, blue flower, iron ore and candied orange peel. There is tobacco, balsam herb and gardening soil in a supporting role, and the wine is beautifully fleshed out but also rich in this balanced growing season." Wine Advocate
Why We Love The 2016 Biondi Santi Brunello
The quality from this estate is unmatched. And in 2016 (one of the greatest vintages in decades), Biondi Santi explodes from the glass with a kaleidoscope of flavors: black and dark red cherry, earth, balsamic, eucalyptus, gorgeous gripping tannins, walnut, exotic spice, and tobacco leaf.
"The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark stallion of a wine that showcases both the depth and radiance of the vintage... The 2016 is one of the most deep and balanced Brunellos that I’ve ever experienced from Biondi Santi." Vinous
Biondi Santi was the first estate to produce a Brunello in the late 19th century. The quality of the wine is unmatched... right there with the likes of Soldera.
Despite its upfront charm, the 2016 Biondi Santi has structure and depth for 25+ years of aging. It is a gorgeous Brunello "impeccably balanced." Wine Enthusiast
