2007 Tenuta Greppo (Biondi-Santi) Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

This is pitch perfect classically-styled brunello, arguably starting to reach peak. God, this is heavenly. On the nose: soft rose, soft tar, soft blackberry...soft but nevertheless intense at the same time. Supremely elegant and refined..on the nose as well as the palate; black cherry, fantastic acidity, pitch perfect density...then tannin building intensity to a finely grained apogee..juiciness to close. Wow.

This is probably the best Brunello I have ever had especially in terms of right timing to open as this bottle was at its peak of equilibrium. The color is still dark and profound with slight violet rim at the edge. The nose was simply heavenly; lots of fruits, mature and starting to be fully integrated and the dusty tannin was as suave as it can get. Bluberry, slight strawberry, wet earth, tiny bit smokey, and all this was fully open in the most suave and uplifting way. Each sip was reverberating at the backend and lasting for very very long. Splendid showing and certainly much more depth than other Biondi Santis that I have had and yet not at all heavy. Wow, sublime indeed! Cheers,

This is brilliant, and, thanks to the vintage's characteristics, seems ready to enjoy now. That said, of course it's early days, but with this much harmony and elegance, it's impossible to resist. Bright, very fresh, with superb balance. Pure joy. highly recommended

What a nose. Cherries, red currants, then sage, balsamic, leather. Primary and tertiary intersecting beautifully at this stage. Tannins very soft, acids Med + and alcohol in check for a warm year. You can tell they picked early. Length is incredibly long. Benchmark brunello. Can’t stop smiling with this in hand.
