Winemaker Ferruccio Biondi Santi was responsible for producing the first Brunello di Montalcino in 1865, an archetype for the style we know today. The esteemed reputation of their wines along with successful growth in the 1960’s motivated others to follow suit. Situated south of Siena and close to the Mediterranean Sea, vineyards planted along the hillsides of Montalcino enjoy warm, dry summers cooled by maritime breezes, creating ideal conditions for viticulture. Tonight, we will be featuring a Riserva from the historic Biondi Santi, along with some of our favourites like Terralsole and Gaja Pieve Santa Restituta.
