Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

-- Parker: The Biondi-Santi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino exudes dark, velvety fruit and concentration while maintaining the signature elegance, suppleness and lithe personalty that distinguishes the iconic Il Greppo estate. I found this new release to be quite distinctive and exquisitely beautiful, setting it apart from many of the past vintages we are most familiar with. This 2015 edition is dark, exuberant and bold, but precise, focused and sharp as well. It will live for years in your cellar, but tasted now in its infancy, the wine shows blackberry, dried cherry, plum and dark cassis. Those dark fruit tones segue to a rich presentation of tar, spice, earth, tobacco and sweet balsam herb. The bouquet offers seamless and smooth transitions. This warm and sunny growing season favored richness and phenolic weight. Wines from Biondi-Santi are made for the long haul, and the fresh acidity that characterizes this estate is the principle reason why. However, I'd argue that this wine from 2015 will evolve over the years not only thanks to the freshness but more so thanks to the important structure of this solid and profound wine. 97+/100


Suckling über: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

-- Suckling: This is so transparent and beautiful with clarity. Cherry, plum, strawberry, and berry character with some stone and orange. It’s full-bodied and very linear and round with balance and refinement. The tannins are fine and very powdery in texture. Excellent depth. Ripe, yet so energetic. Fresh, vivid and round. Drink or hold. 97/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Montosoli lies above the morning fog line, allowing for greater exposure to the morning sun, and was the first single vineyard designated wine in Montalcino’s history with its first vintage in 1975. The 2016 takes all the components of the estate Brunello and is amplified with concentrated raspberry coulis, sage, and rose petal. Once again, there is tremendous consistency from the nose to the palate, though here the structure is compact and will need additional time for those who shy away from grippy, building tannins. Drink over the next 20 years or more. Drink 2024-2042. 97/100


Falstaff über: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

-- Falstaff: Funkelndes Rubin mit ausgeprägter Granatzunge. Sehr präzise und fein gezeichnete Nase, wirkt sehr geschliffen, nach frischen, reifen Kirschen, auch Preiselbeere, dazu etwas Kardamom und Ingwer. Am Gaumen griffiges, dichtes Tannin, breitet sich satt aus, wirkt noch extrem jung, viel Kraft für lange Reife. 96/100

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...
