Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Upon release, Biondi-Santi’s ’97 Brunello radiated purity and elegance, but its massive tannins required extensive aging before true approachability--two decades later, this silky, nuanced wine is firing on all cylinders. Juicy red and blue fruits dance against a backdrop of balsamic herbs, warm cigar wrapper, worn leather, white truffles, dried violet petals, and touches of smoky minerals. Ethereal in the mouth, a sturdy acidic core powers this Brunello as it glides on the palate; fine-grained tannins stud the finish that resonates and lingers. 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.
