Biondi Santi, Brunello di Montalcino, Riserva 2006

RRP £374

This was a good vintage, hot in July and quite dry, but with plenty of water reserves to draw upon. Mid September harvest.

A wine on the cusp of maturity. Intense palate with notes of umami and undergrowth, yet it remains quite youthful and energetic. It is more vertical versus the rounder 2012 and has a natural harmony.
