Biondi Santi's 'Tenuta Greppo' is where it all began for Montalcino's eventual rise to fine wine stardom. Clemente Santi's submission of 'Vino Rosso Puro 1852' at a National Exhibition in Florence is possibly the first 100% Sangiovese grown in Montalcino and provided the framework for his descendants creation of Brunello di Montalcino. The entire history of Montalcino as a wine region are completely inseparable from the Santi name. It's no wonder the Biondi-Santi approach to winemaking has resiliently stayed true to its roots even during the 1990's when new oak barrels and riper grapes from continuously replanted vineyards were en vogue especially with critics and collectors. All of the wines of Biondi-Santi emphasize elegance over power and have long been praised for their unrivaled ability to last decade after decade. After careful evaluation and patient aging, Biondi-Santi releases their Riserva in the best vintages. The Riservas from Biondi Santi are some of the most sought after releases amongst all Italian wines and beyond, partly thanks to vineyards going back before WWII.
