Notes from the Winemaker:
Biondi-Santi is a 19th century estate that is a benchmark in Tuscany for top shelf Montalcino wines. While their wines are known to age marvelously decades down the line, this Rosso di Montalcino can be opened sooner. This is powerful, traditional Sangiovese at its best.

Rosso di Montalcino comes from the younger Sangiovese Grosso vineyards (between 5 and 10 years old) of Greppo Estate. It also ages for 12 months in Slavonian oak casks and it is a wine ready to drink, young and fruity.

Tasting Notes:
Both wines have a quite intense ruby red colour, typical and intense perfume, they are dry, warm, tasty and lightly tannic.

Ratings and Reviews

94 Points - Wine Advocate:
"Here's a wine that proudly opens a new chapter for Montalcino's celebrated Rosso. The Biondi-Santi 2017 Rosso di Montalcino opens to immediately recognized Sangiovese character, presented in a soft, delicate and nuanced manner. The wine pours from its distinctive yellow-labelled bottle to a beautifully mild garnet color with dark sepia accents. As it takes on oxygen in the glass, the wine reveals a slow progression of wild berry, rose, tar, spice and tilled earth. There are faint traces of caramel, candied orange and wild mountain herb. The 2017 growing season delivered ample heat and drought, but the new winemaking team at Il Greppo has taken on these challenges with grace and expertise. On the close, this Rosso shows its characteristic acidity and just enough structure to promise good ageing potential."

92 Points - Vinous Media:
"There’s a purity and savory refinement to the 2017 Rosso di Montalcino Tenuta Greppo that transcends the expectations of this warm and dry vintage. A perfumed display of wild strawberries, fresh roses, violets and a dusting of minerals lift up from the glass. Its textures are silky, carried across a feminine frame, with bright cherries and inner herbal tones that find vibrancy through a core of brilliant acidity. Nuanced tannins and dried berries linger, leaving a lightly structured yet very pretty impression. This is a great introduction to the Biondi-Santi portfolio and deserves the moniker of “Baby Brunello''. That said, the 2017 could use another year of cellaring to further unlock its inner beauty."
