ROSSO DI MONTALCINO DOC
1995

This wine was originally known as the Biondi-Santi “White Label Brunello”, but changed its name in 1983, when the Rosso di Montalcino DOC was established.
It reflects the signature style of our high-altitude vineyards with a vibrant freshness and a distinct fruitiness which makes it thoroughly enjoyable at a young age.

VINTAGE 1995
After a mild winter and a moderately rainy spring which paved the way for a regular start of the vegetative cycle, a warm and generally dry summer followed, characterized by 2 restoring rain showers mid-month. The beginning of September was rainy while the second half was hot and dry, leading us to postpone our harvest to October 3rd to give the grapes the opportunity to reach full ripeness.
ORIGIN
The Rosso di Montalcino 1995 was produced with our proprietary clone of Sangiovese Grosso called BBS11 (Brunello Biondi Santi 11), which was identified and selected by Biondi-Santi at Tenuta Greppo in the Seventies. For this wine we exclusively used grapes from the youngest vines with less than 10 years of age.
AGEING
The 1995 Rosso di Montalcino was aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months.
