2006 Biondi Santi (Tenuta Greppo) Brunello di Montalcino (qty: 2)
One of the best Biondi-Santi's in years. This is really silky, with plum and chocolate and hints of cedar. Some citrus as well. Full body, with gorgeous fruit and a persistent finish.
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is remarkably harmonious at this young stage, quite a departure at Biondi-Santi. The 2006 shows dazzling richness and integrity in its powerful fruit in a totally captivating, sensual style. This is a beautifully centered, complete Brunello with a bright future ahead of it. (AG)
The supple texture up front is matched by strict tannins on the finish in this taut red. Black cherry, blackberry, mineral and spice flavors abound as this cruises to a long finish. The tannins are just a tad assertive now, so be patient. (BS)
This gorgeous wine from Biond-Santi represents one of the best Brunellos ever made by this storied Montalcino producer. The wine is clean, fresh and shows a slow, steady evolution in the glass. It is also more concentrated, rich and intense than recent vintages.
Gorgeous spice and cherry nose with minerally hints and a touch of incense. Fantastic depth and complexity. Finely polished tannins and elegant fruit on a long focused finish. Still lots of potential. True breed and spectacularly balanced. 18/20 points (WS)
