BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO
DENOMINAZIONE D'ORIGINE CONTROLLATA E GARANTITA
This wine is the fruit of a collaboration with a part of the family which grows its vines close to Biondi Santi estate "Il Greppo", cradle and heart of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation. Around this village, the Sangiovese, called "Brunello", benefits from one of the best terroirs in the world. Here, the soil alternates clays and marine detritus with Pliocene sands and Santa Fiora stones, originating from the extinct volcano on Monte Amiata. A unique Alpine-Mediterranean climate gives late-ripening seasons, creating long aging wines which can express all of Sangiovese’s bouquet and varietal characteristics.
