Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2011 gave winemakers a warm, dry vintage, but Biondi-Santi turned that ripe year into a textured, expressive and approachable Brunello--a real rarity for this estate whose reputation is making austerely beautiful wines of near-infinite longevity. Pure, transparent red fruits dance with crushed wildflowers, cypress needles, fresh-cut mint, sun-warmed earth, river rocks and spice in a genial, open-knit expression that’s enjoyable almost upon release. Powerful yet precise, this is a knockout Brunello for wine-lovers who love Biondi-Santi’s telltale palate but don’t have the patience to wait for the estate’s wines to mature. 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.
