Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2010 is not merely a benchmark vintage for Brunello di Montalcino; it’s a vintage that recalibrates the entire scale for excellence, and perhaps no wine captures the remarkable age-worthiness, elegance and beauty of this vintage like Biondi-Santi ’10 Brunello Riserva. Nuanced, finessed and profound, the nose of this Brunello Riserva wafts with crushed rose and violet petals, pure red fruit, a touch of spice, fresh-cut herbs, and Montalcino terroir; it’s classic and it’s stunning. Fine-grained, sophisticated tannins balance with piquant acidity in this aristocratic, austere Riserva bottling that will need cellar time to become truly approachable, but it’s a nearly ageless wine that will drink for many decades. 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. Deriving from vines between 25 and 80 years old, Biondi-Santi Brunello Riservas undergo fermentation in traditional Slavonian oak for 18 days, followed by aging in large oak casks of 800 to 7,000 liters for a period of three years, followed by time in the bottle; Biondi-Santi releases its Brunello Riserva in the sixth year after harvest.
