Rosso di Montalcino Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo 2019


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. A centuries-old history, made up of passion, competence and love for the territory, which began in the mid-19th century thanks to the work and passion of Clemente Santi, a scholar and great landowner: in fact, the Tenuta Il Greppo was his.

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. We are at an altitude between 350 and 570 metres, in ideal conditions for the production of Brunello.


A lovely encounter of flowers and red berry fruits, the Rosso di Montalcino 2019 reveals fresh, energetic notes of cherries, blood oranges, pomegranate, violets and honey suckle, followed by balsamic sensations of kitchen herbs, liquorice root and menthol. The nose and palate are fully aligned as the crunchy tannins and lively acidity blend in with this Rosso’s impressive, levigated fruity core, leading us towards a savoury finish with long-lingering mineral notes. The longer the wine is allowed to breathe in the glass, the more the impressive weight and depth of this marvellous vintage show their character.

Traditionally, the Rosso is produced from our youngest vines, and from those vineyard plots which underline the fruitiness. It is fermented in cement vats and has an ageing in oak which is shorter than that of the Brunello, 12 months.

This wine was originally known as the Biondi-Santi Brunello “white label”, but became the estate’s Rosso in 1983, when the Rosso di Montalcino DOC was established.
