Grape Variety

Also known as Rosso di Montalcino 'White Label'. Grapes sourced from young vines. Jacopo Biondi Santi, son of Franco Biondi Santi, has taken over the Tenuta Greppo in 2013.

"Lithe and easy drinking, this fragrant red has delicate aromas of mint, star anise, wild rose and woodland berries. Savory and linear, the easygoing palate offers juicy sour cherry, orange zest and hints of white pepper alongside fresh acidity and smooth tannins. Unlike the firm's famed Rossos of years gone by that could be enjoyed young but also boasted surprising longevity, this should be enjoyed soon. Kerin O’Keefe" - 90/100, Wine Enthusiast

I am immediately smitten by the Biondi-Santi 2016 Rosso di Montalcino thanks to the purity of the aromas on display. The bouquet literally submerges the senses in Sangiovese, with those delicate aromas of wild rose, violets, wet earth and brambly forest berry. Background notes of licorice, camphor ash and balsam herb come into steady focus. I am delighted by the intensity and the immense focus of this wine. This Rosso di Montalcino stands with the best of Brunello and gives us good reason to have very high expectations for the 2016 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino that will be released appellation-wide at the beginning of next year. This is a solid mid-weight Rosso with good structure and fine points of fresh acidity that move the wine with determination and grace smoothly over the palate. - Wine Advocate, June 2020
