Biondi Santi Brunello Di Montalcino 2012

Biond-Santi remains a beacon for traditionally made Rosso and Brunello. At 90 years of age, Franco Biondi-Santi insisted on leading my tasting of wines from cask and bottle. The years go by for all of us, but I haven't seen any decrease in Biondi-Santi's enthusiasm and passion. The Biondi-Santi wines are more approachable young than they used to be, but little else appears to have changed. Biondi-Santi harvests on the early side. The wines see long macerations on the skins - in steel for the straight Brunello (also known as the Annata) and oak for the Riserva - and are then aged in large oak casks.

The Sangiovese Grosso, called Brunello, is harvested in the second half of September and the grapes are immediately brought in the winery to be destemmed and fermented. The grapes are put in temperature controlled steel tanks where the fermentation with skins maceration lasts around 15 days at a temperature of 28-30ºC. Here the skins gives the wine their aromas and polyphenols. Once drawn, Brunello stays in Slavonia oak barrels for 3 years and then bottled.

We drank it just like that, without any food pairing. My best friend from Brunello Di Montalcino recommended it to me.
It has a very nice colour. It has aromas that reminded me of white roses. Distinctive oxidation notes on the palate.

The reddish brown edges were not very nice. Definitely the wrong colour, although it was an acceptable wine. It resembles a red fruit compote.Not the sweetest wine, but kind of.
I had it at a barbecue party.
Perfect with friends.
