2006 Biondi Santi (Tenuta Greppo) Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1095007 95 points James Suckling

 One of the best Biondi-Santi's in years. This is really silky, with plum and chocolate and hints of cedar. Some citrus as well. Full body, with gorgeous fruit and a persistent finish. Give this another three to four years to open.  (7/2011)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is remarkably harmonious at this young stage, quite a departure at Biondi-Santi. The 2006 shows dazzling richness and integrity in its powerful fruit in a totally captivating, sensual style. This is a beautifully centered, complete Brunello with a bright future ahead of it. The Brunello was fermented in cement and aged for three years in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036. (AG)  (5/2011)

94 points Wine Spectator

 The supple texture up front is matched by strict tannins on the finish in this taut red. Black cherry, blackberry, mineral and spice flavors abound as this cruises to a long finish. The tannins are just a tad assertive now, so be patient. Best from 2013 through 2027. (BS)  (8/2011)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

 This gorgeous wine from Biond-Santi represents one of the best Brunellos ever made by this storied Montalcino producer. The wine is clean, fresh and shows a slow, steady evolution in the glass. It is also more concentrated, rich and intense than recent vintages.  (4/2011)

K&L Notes

Additional producer and vintage notes from Wine Advocate: "A visit to Il Greppo is always fascinating, as the estate is literally packed with history at every corner. The old casks, some of which date to the late 1800s, the collection of rare bottles and the impeccably clean, traditionally outfitted cellar are all worth a look. I was impressed with the wines I tasted from Biondi-Santi this year. The 2007 Rosso and 2006 Brunello are both far more accessible than the super-austere wines that were common here not too long ago." (05/11)
