In the highly celebrated vintage of 2015, the standard-bearer of this DOCG reaped the benefits of the favourable vintage conditions to produce a genuinely singular and outstanding wine. As such, they have successfully produced one of the best iterations of Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino, garnering a wonderful 97+ points from Monica Larner (Wine Advocate) who waxes lyrical about this pure and delicate expression of Sangiovese finding:

 

"this new release to be quite distinctive and exquisitely beautiful, setting it apart from many of the past vintages we are most familiar with"

 

"The bouquet offers seamless and smooth transitions...Wines from Biondi-Santi are made for the long haul, and the fresh acidity that characterizes this estate is the principal reason why."

 

Incredibly, this may well be one of the best wines ever produced by Tenuta Biondi Santi in its very long history. The only comparable wine of the estate in recent years, the 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (98 points WA), and the 2015 Annata is obviously a lot more accessible than the 2006 Riserva.

About Biondi Santi

Widely acknowledged as the most noble name in Tuscany, Biondi Santi is historically linked to the inception, development and flourishing of the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. The first estate to be recorded as crafting what oenophiles around the globe know and love as Brunello (there is some academic disagreement), there is no doubt whatsoever with regards to its trailblazing status in the region.

Dubbed in 1932 “the inventor of Brunello”, Ferruccio Biondi Santi was in fact the third generation of his family to craft age-worthy wines in the area. His great uncle Giorgio Santi was said to have been the first to vinify a pure Sangiovese wine in the late 1800s, and the legacy of this extraordinary family has led experts such as Antonio Galloni (Vinous) to declare this “the estate that put Brunello di Montalcino on the map”.

Historical significance aside, it is the uniquely perfect situation of the Biondi Santi vineyards which see it placed firmly at the pinnacle of Brunello producers. Perched at an elevated position amongst the rolling hills of Montalcino, its vines enjoy a unique micro-climate alongside a remarkably broad diurnal range. These temperature differences decelerate ripening during the harvest period, in turn allow the grapes to develop complex, nuanced aromas which reflect the very greatest characteristics of Brunello di Montalcino.
