BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG
Riserva 1993

"La Storica"

VINTAGE 1993 
The harvest has been classified between “excellent” and “exceptional”. Very favourable spring season development: March, April and May rainy, June, July and August dry and warm. A few showers in the middle of September. A dry harvest started on September 30th.
ORIGIN
The 1993 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 1993 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.
