Special flavour events

In the history of famous appellations, it is rare for an appellation to go back to a single family. In Montalcino, in the heart of Tuscany, there has been a family name for centuries: Biondi Santi. “We have been making a unique wine for centuries: a Brunello di Montalcino that knows how to convince through personality and character. It has a profile and a typicity that can always be recognised,” says Jacopo Biondi Santi, the sixth generation oenologist, describing the philosophy of the house, which has been lived for centuries.
