BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG
Riserva 1981

"La Storica"

VINTAGE 1981
A great season with May rainy and warm, July and August dry and warm, September fairly dry. A dry harvest season.
ORIGIN
The 1981 Riserva 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 Riserva we exclusively used grapes from the oldest vines with over 25 years of age.
AGEING
The 1981 Riserva was aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 3 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 in 2000.
