Biondi Santi, Brunello di Montalcino, Riserva 1983

RRP £435

A hot and dry vintage which started 10 days earlier than usual.

Mature, full-bodied dark and rather sultry wine. The bold structure and tannins have mellowed, but it’s powerful with sleek muscle. If Biondi Santi Brunello Reserva is a wine for contemplation, do not contemplate drinking this without food.
