Heiner Lobenberg über:
Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2016


Lobenberg: Biondi Santi verkörpert in seinen Brunelli immer noch den Geist der Tradition. Nicht die überwältigende Frucht eines Soldera, Poggio di Sotto oder Valdicava, eher basierend auf der Eleganz eines Salvioni einen erdigen Ansatz aufbauend. Balsamico, Trüffel, Erde, Amarena, Zwetschge. Tiefes, würziges Finale. Feige und geröstetes Holz, aber altes Holz. Komplex und aromatisch, sehr hintergründig. Immer noch 'a class of its own'. 98-100/100


Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

-- Parker: Wow, here is a vintage I've been anxiously waiting to try. The 2016 growing season was one of the best in recent memory in Montalcino, and if we look back in time, this vintage marks the year Biondi-Santi was sold to a French group. The prestigious 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva proves a mighty collector's bottle that will undoubtedly gain in complexity and depth with careful bottle age. The wine offers wild nuances of forest berry and tart cherry, and there are herbal side notes as well as floral tones of dried violet and lilac. The tannins are soft, powdery and feel like they melt away on the palate. 99/100


Suckling über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

-- Suckling: Aromas of strawberries, flowers, fresh mushroom, forest flower, sandalwood, and hints of balsamic. Full-bodied and tight on the finish. This is a linear and fine-tannined red. Available in March 2023. Needs another five years or so to show its full potential. New classic. Better after 2026. 98/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva is layered and unfolds in the glass with incense, baking spice, ripe red cherry, and cedar. It has more concentration and length through the mid-palate and offers an impeccable balance of structure, ripeness, and tension. It is expressive on the nose, but it is even more impactful at this stage with its intensity through the palate, with nearly electric energy of wild raspberry, rose petal, tea leaf, and orange zest. Allow for cellaring another 3-4 years. Drink 2026-2046. 98/100


Wine Spectator über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

-- Wine Spectator: A harmonious, balanced red, this sets the stage perfectly for the cherry, strawberry, floral, iron and tobacco flavors. Fresh and detailed, with a linear profile and refined structure driving the seemingly endless finish. Superb. Best from 2026 through 2050. From Italy. 98/100


Falstaff über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

-- Falstaff: Mittleres Rubin-Granat mit etwas lichtem Rand. Intensive Nase mit Noten nach frischer Zwetschge, rote Johannisbeere, feine Fruchtsüße, ein Hauch von Orangenzesten und Feigen, Nuancen von Nugat. Komplex, stoffig, seidige Tannine, salzig im Abgang, angenehme Extraktsüße, delikat und frisch, packende Mineralität im Abgang, bleibt minutenlang haften, rotbeerig im Rückgeschmack, Reifepotenzial für viele Jahrzehnte. 98/100

Mein Winzer

Biondi Santi

Der Erfinder des Brunello di Montalcino. Das Gegenteil eines jungen „Mainstreamers“, Biondi Santi ist DER traditionsbewusste „Oldschooler“. Das berühmte Weingut südöstlich von Montalcino kann sich auf die Fahne schreiben, mit dem Brunello nicht nur einen eigenen Weinstil erfunden zu haben, sondern...
