BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOC
Riserva 1961

"La Storica"

VINTAGE 1961
An excellent vintage.
ORIGIN
The 1961 Riserva was produced exclusively with estate grown grapes sourced from the oldest vines with over 25 years of age. This wine antecedes the registration of the proprietary BBS11 Sangiovese Grosso clone (Brunello Biondi Santi 11), which bears the name of the family. This clone was formally recognized in 1978
AGEING 
The 1961 Riserva was aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 4 years. It benefited from a long refinement in the bottle in the quiet and darkness of “La Storica”, the bottle library at Tenuta Greppo where all the historic vintages of Biondi-Santi Riserva are scrupulously kept.
TOPPING UP 
This vintage was topped up and the cork was changed for the first time in 1987 and again in 1990.
