Description

The Brunello par excellence, from the famous Tenuta Il Greppo di Biondi Santi, majestic, solemn, noble, among the wines that have made the history of the appellation.

The BBS11 clone (Brunello Biondi Santi, vine n ° 11) comes from a particular type of Sangiovese Grosso grapes, identified and expertly selected by the Biondi Santi in the same Tenuta Il Greppo, whose bunches are harvested from plants having an age that it can range from 10 to 25 years. The must ferments on the skins under controlled conditions, then it is left to mature, like any self-respecting great aging red, in wood, and in particular in Slavonian oak barrels for a period of never less than 3 years. A very long evolution in the bottle follows in the silence and stillness of the historic aging cellar.

The 2016 vintage

2016 was a year with a rainy winter and a rainy and temperate spring. The summer was characterized by generally below average temperatures, with the rains at the end of August / beginning of September which prolonged the pre-harvest period, leading to a slow and very balanced ripening of the grapes.

The manual harvest began on 19 September more than a week later than the average for Biondi-Santi. Bright ruby red in color, it offers a scent of sweet and fragrant fruit, with hints of cherry dominating the olfactory picture, as is typical of Sangiovese from the high hills. To the cherry aromas of blood orange and small red berried fruits are added, in addition to balsamic sensations and fragrant herbs. In the mouth structure, elegance and freshness come together to form something truly special, with velvety tannins that immerse themselves in a tasteful experience of great balance. The finish is very long and savory, worthy of a Brunello with an extraordinary personality.
