Our mid-February fine wine offer includes this stunning 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva from the Biondi Santi Estate. The offer includes 6x75cl bottles in original case packaging and can be transferred to bonded and private account holders.
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva makes a bold and more articulate statement (compared to the 2012 Annata wine released at the same time). That extra year of aging has contributed to more powerful aromas of dark fruit, balsam herb and spice. There is extra fiber and texture here overall. This Riserva shows a higher degree of density and a tighter embroidery with dark fruit, spice and tobacco. Both 2011 and 2012 are warm vintages, and the wines produced do not boast the same level of bright acidity that you normally get from this estate. But, if there’s one thing the wines of Biondi-Santi have demonstrated over the years, it is that they get better with time. Set this bottle aside in your cellar. 92 Points by Monica Larner of Wine Advocate, February 2017.
