The Biondi-Santi flagship wine, the Brunello di Montalcino embodies the spirit of Tenuta Greppo and the signature style of our winemakers, forged over 150 years of history with its balanced combination of fresh elegance, depth and aristocratic personality.
A temperate spring with frequent rainfalls led to an early summer, which remained dry and very hot from June to September. Harvest started approximately 10 days earlier than usual, due to the early ripening of the grapes.
The 1983 Brunello was produced with our proprietary clone of Sangiovese Grosso called BBS11 (Brunello Biondi Santi 11), which was identified and selected by Biondi-Santi at Tenuta Greppo in the Seventies. For this Brunello we exclusively used grapes from the vines with between 10 and 25 years of age.
The 1983 Brunello was aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 3 years. It benefited from a long refinement in the bottle.
