Description

A little brother who promises well

Among the estates owned by the Biondi Santi winery, Il Greppo is certainly the most famous and historic; despite being the smallest, it is known for being the birthplace of the first Brunello di Montalcino in history. But it was with Franco, in 1970, that the company made an epochal turning point: stubborn and enterprising producer, strong of his degree in Agriculture but above all of the experiences of his father Tancredi Biondi Santi, he improved the winemaking techniques and began to study a selection of the best clones of Sangiovese Grosso present on the farm, managing to isolate one, in particular, which currently occupies most of the Greppo vineyard area. Considered the younger brother of Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino is a versatile wine from which emerges the wealth of Sangiovese Grosso and modern winery techniques; a product capable of being immediately ready to drink but also able to last for many years.

Ruby color tending to garnet, releases intense hints of violet, currant and marasca, slight spiciness, balsamic hints and underbrush tones. Full and structured at the sip, it is soft and well balanced between acidity and flavor, with velvety tannins and a long mineral finish.

With pasta and beans and a cut with rosemary, with a Tuscan appetizer of cold cuts and crostini and with lampredotto.
