*6R* 2015 Biondi-Santi Rosso di Montalcino (Tuscany, IT)

Weight: 6R

Varietal: Sangiovese

Region: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

While Rosso di Montalcino was conceived as an easier, fresher Sangiovese to drink while your Brunellos from the same vintages aged in the cellar, a standout like the Biondi-Santi changes the game entirely. From Brunello's original leading producer, this Rosso combines the estate's exacting, over-the-top winemaking with the outstanding 2015 vintage to create a wine that exceeds both its category and its vintage.

Refined, classic, and complex, deep, full and long; a rare treat. Brunello-philes, take note!
