2007 Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
From the estate that invented Brunello di Montalcino comes one of THE great wines of Italy, the Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, arguably the most aristocratic expression of Sangiovese in the world.
The Wine Advocate swooned: "The estate’s flagship Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is terrific in 2007. Rose petals, red cherries, flowers and spices are all layered together. This isn’t a huge wine, but rather a Brunello of elegance, refinement and pure finesse. The 2007 is a total infant of a wine, but one that holds quite a bit of promise for the future. There is plenty of vintage 2007 radiance, but it would be a shame to open a bottle before its tenth birthday."
Considered the father of Brunello di Montalcino, Franco Biondi Santi passed away at the age of 91 in 2013. In the mid 1800s, his great, great grandfather, Clemente Santi, was determined to find the best grape clone suited to the Montalcino soil. At that time, most Italian winemakers were producing simple field blends. In 1865, the elder Santi introduced a wine called “brunello” for the first time. During World War II, Franco and his father hid their precious library of wines from the German soldiers. Under Franco’s watch, the production of Brunello di Montalcino increased dramatically, from only 385 acres in 1971 to roughly 5,200 acres at the time of his death in 2013. In 1968, the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) was created for Brunello di Montalcino, largely based on the guidelines established by the Biondi Santi Family.About Biondi Santi
