Description Sub Region Producer Notes
The product of a warm yet classic vintage, this ’87 Brunello Annata embodies the grace, longevity and sheer class that made Biondi-Santi world famous. Now with more than three decades of maturity, tertiary notes of game, black tea, soy and truffles frame the primary red fruits and secondary notes of earth, pressed violet petals, baking spices and telltale Montalcino underbrush. Equally silky and vibrant, this wine shimmers across the palate with an elegant feel as it builds to a lingering, sneakily powerful finish--it’s exceptional and will drink for another decade, possibly longer. Known for its nose and intense age-worthiness, a Biondi-Santi Brunello's trademark aromatics and acidity are attributable to the vineyard's altitude that ranges between 1,300-1,600 feet above sea level. Biondi-Santi's Brunello Annata, or normale bottling, undergoes fermentation in traditional Slavonian oak for about 18 days, followed by aging in large oak casks of 800 to 7,000 liters for a period of two to three years, setting the standard for traditional Brunello.
