Even though the current situation does not allow us to meet all our Sommeliers and all the enthusiasts in person, as we usual do, we will be able to make a virtual toast together by connecting from our devices”.

Focus - Recollection: Winenews tastings with Franco Biondi Santi and the warmth of a special wine
The Italian Sommeliers, directed by Antonello Maietta, paid tribute, today, by awarding the “Tastevin” of the Vitae 2021 Guide, to one of the greatest Montalcino wines ever: Brunello Tenuta Greppo Riserva 2012 Biondi Santi. The family has made this wine a symbol of Made in Italy throughout the world, the last wine of the unforgettable “Master of Brunello” Franco Biondi Santi. It is ... A wine of immense elegance, great nobility and finesse, and absolutely and extraordinarily unique (I say this having tasted, together “with the Doctor”, Franco Biondi Santi, almost all the Reserves of the Greppo Estate, from 1888 to 2010, including 1891, 1945, 1955, 1964, 1970 - the first harvest, without his father, Tancredi - 1975, 1983, 1998, which you liked so much...), as well as an established identity of the territory of Montalcino.
“Thank you, Doctor” for your most recent masterpiece.
Montalcino will never forget you, and even the new owner, commemorating you with this special wine, has shown genuine and heartfelt warmth. (Alessandro Regoli, director of WineNews)
