Biondi-Santi’s Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is the flagship wine of this historic and famed Tuscan estate. Dating back to the 1800’s the estate is now run by Jacopo haven taken over from the legendary Franco who did much to maintain Biondi-Santi as one the premier estates in all Italy. The Riserva is made only in the best years from old vines and matured for 3 years in barrel.

“The delightful 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is expressive and feminine with crushed chamomile, forest fruit, bramble, tar and licorice. It renders a stirring, melodic performance that plays out slowly but with determination."

“Superb precision to the aromas of sour red cherry, raspberry, violet and minerals. Intensely flavored and bracing.” Antonio Galloni

“Biondi-Santi remains a beacon for traditionally made Rosso and Brunello.”
