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 majestic vintage where structure, elegance and freshness combine to form something special. 2015 was a hot and dry year with constant warm temperatures from May through August which permitted the grapes to reach perfect ripeness with sweet, yet fragrant aromas. Harvest started on September 21st.
The 2015 Brunello was produced exclusively with a selection grapes from our proprietary vineyards.
The 2015 Brunello was aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 3 years.
The sunny character of the 2015 Brunello speaks of a warm vintage with sweet, yet fragrant fruit, not at all opulent, sporting prominent notes of fresh cherries, typical of high-altitude Sangiovese. The fruit arises delicately from a bed of aromatic herbs such as thyme and rosemary with hints of liquorice root. On the palate the captivating structure reveals silky tannins backed up by the usual sensation of freshness that is instrumental for the fine balance which lies at the heart of the Biondi-Santi tasting experience. The finish is long and surprisingly savoury, adding to the gastronomic personality of this Brunello. For the first time in history Biondi-Santi produced this wine in 750 ml and Magnum bottles.
