ROSSO DI MONTALCINO DOC
2012

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 2012
The quite warm spring was followed by a dry and sunny summer begin. The month of August had temperatures in line with previous years but with some light showers in the second part. A cool September with some rain in the week right before the harvest, which began on September 10th.
ORIGIN
The Rosso di Montalcino 2012  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 2012 Rosso di Montalcino was aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months.
