Wine Enthusiast über: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

-- Wine Enthusiast: Fragrant and loaded with finesse, this stunning red still shows the estate's hallmark of elegance and structure, opening with enticing scents of rose, iris, wild red berry and a whiff of new leather. The vibrant palate is dazzling and almost ethereal, delivering flavors of succulent red cherry, pomegranate, star anise and a hint of forest floor. Taut, polished tannins and bright acidity provide impeccable balance. 98/100


Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

-- Parker: This is the year dottore Franco Biondi Santi would pass away, leaving the Brunello appellation orphaned because he was its most beloved and respected paternal figure. A wine shaped very much in his memory, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a stunning edition, with a tight inner core of wild fruit and natural acidity surrounded by elegant tones of blue flower, wild cherry, cured tobacco, balsam herb and camphor ash. This vintage displays a beautiful garnet color that shines in the glass followed by mid-weight concentration and an especially fresh and vibrant finish that lasts for many long minutes. This wine should be held in the cellar for at least ten more years. 96+/100


Decanter über: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

-- Decanter: Due to the late start and generally cool conditions in 2013, harvest began at the end of September at Biondi-Santi, just slightly later than the average. The wine has been held back over a year longer than the denomination regulations and released in March 2019. Still embryonic and reserved, dark floral scents of violet and lilac gradually emerge before notes of sage and thyme take over. The tangy acidity of the vintage comes through brilliantly, amplifying layers of fine, chalky tannins. For now, nuances of rosehip, mint and wild red currants are deeply buried, hinted at only on the finish. It's difficult to forget that this was the year that we lost the legendary Franco Biondi-Santi. 95/100

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...
