BIONDI SANTI Annata Tenuta il Greppo Brunello di Montalcino 2018


The Biondi Santi winery, firmly guided for decades by Franco Biondi Santi, has become a symbol of Montalcino, and today, under the guidance of his son Jacopo, it is the undisputed point of reference for all Brunello enthusiasts.

The Biondi Santi wines received their first important awards at the 1867 Universal Exhibition in Paris, imposing themselves on the international wine scene for their multifaceted elegance. It was, however, the now historic 1888 vintage that produced what we know today as Brunello di Montalcino.

The heart of the Biondi Santi winery coincides with the historic Il Greppo Estate; a total of 43 hectares, 25 of which are populated by Sangiovese vineyards, where there are very old plantings dating back as far as 1930.


“Spending one’s lifetime working amid nature, in this country blessed by God, is wonderful.”
Franco Biondi Santi

It is a rare phenomenon that a wine can trace its origins to a single man. Brunello di Montalcino, however, owes its existence to the creative genius of Clemente Santi and his nephew Ferruccio Biondi Santi who in the eighteen hundreds started producing barrel-aged single-varietal wines in Montalcino, betting on the extraordinary quality potential of Sangiovese grosso.

Since 1888, the first vintage of Brunello in history, Biondi-Santi has continued to produce wines renowned for their elegance and extraordinary longevity.

-Tasting notes: vintage 2018-

2018 was a quite cool year, characterised by abundant rainfalls which accompanied the entire growth cycle of the vine. Overall, the summer saw temperatures below average. Just before harvesting the grapes from our high-altitude vineyards a week of healthy wind from the north contributed to drying vines and grapes, preparing them for picking. Harvest started on September 16th and lasted for 8 days with a careful selection of the best bunches.

Considering the weather conditions of the year, it is not surprising if 2018 has given a fragrant and energetic Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino, so well refined and balanced to be defined as pixelated. As soon as you smell the wine you may feel the low presence of alcohol together with a variety of invigorating notes as dried herbs, violet, orange zest, forest berry, Morello cherry and crushed mint. The palate is delicious and succulent, dangerously easy to drink now, but also able to age beautifully, thanks to its bright acidity. A vibrant, juicy wine, which literally dances across the palate, with velvety and polished tannins. A saline mesmerizing touch adds complexity to the finish, remembering us what a wine with “sense of place” means.
