Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2001

Biondi-Santi is one of the world’s most revered producers and is more or less the founder of the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. They remain to this day as arguably the most prestigious producer in the region.

The estate is known for its unswerving adherence to traditional production methods, using long fermentations with native yeasts and ageing periods.

For their Brunellos this is in resin-lined cement tanks, while the riserva is fermented in wooden vats.

Large Slavonian oak is primarily used for maturation, as well as a few barrels dating back to the 19th century.

Vintage 2004

Exceptional vintage.

The harvest started in the second decade and was dry and cold.

Grapes were mature, rich in colour, extract and acidity.

Only grapes that come from the Estate vineyards are vinified. Uncork and pour out a bit of wine from the bottles at least 8 hours before serving.
