Biondi-Santi Brunello Di Montalcino 2016

Biondi-Santi Brunello Di Montalcino 2016

A rainy winter was followed by a quite rainy spring but with mild temperatures. The summer brought sun, warmth and stability with temperatures lower than the seasonal average. Rainfalls between the end of August and the beginning of September extended the pre-harvest time, favouringa very slow but balanced ripening of the grapes where the fruit benefitted from important day / night temperature swings, which enriched their aromatic notes.  Harvest started on September 19th, with over a week’s delay compared to Biondi-Santi normal standards.


The 2016 Brunello was produced exclusively with a selection of Sangiovese Grosso coming from our proprietary vineyards.


The 2016 Brunello has been vinified in vitrified concrete tanks by using indigenous yeasts, selected in our vineyards. Successively, it was aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 3 years.


The 2016 Brunello is a wine of light and energy. On the nose crispy notes of sour cherries, blood oranges and small red berry fruits are accompanied by scents of Mediterranean balsamic herbs and a touch of flint.   On the palate energy, sweet fruit and silky tannins form a caressing sensation of elegance and equilibrium, leading us towards a long-lingering finish with a distinct savoury touch – fresh and clean.
