Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Biondi-Santi’s ’79 Brunello Annata represents its landmark year with poise, polish, and power. Primary notes of rich red and blue fruits mingle with secondary notes of spice, crushed stones, worn leather, herbs and violet petals, while tertiary flavors of black tea, fruit compote, truffles and autumn leaves provide a riveting backdrop. Remarkably vivid acidity melds seamlessly with fine-grained tannins as this silky wine glides with an ethereal feel to a complex, kaleidoscopic finish. Biondi-Santi crafts its "Annata," or normale bottlings, from fruit grown on vines between 10-25 years old in marl soil. Vinified in temperature-controlled cement tanks and aged in Slovenian oak casks, Biondi-Santi Brunello is extraordinarily age-worthy, balanced and beautiful, akin to Brunello's answer to Burgundy.
