The Riserva is produced from Greppos Sangiovese vineyards of over 25 years of age and is made only in exceptionally good years. The Riserva is aged 36 months in Slavonian oak casks. The basic characteristic of the Brunello of Greppo Biondi Santi is its longevity, even over a hundred years. To allow the flavour to fully unfold, the bottle should be opened and a bit of wine poured out at least 8 hours before drinking. Serving temperature: 18°C.
Exceptional vintage. The Spring was cold and wet. June, July and August warm and dry with considerable temperature range and rain falls at regular intervals. September was cold and dry. The harvest started on September 20th…! and was cold and dry. Grapes were healthy, with thick skins and rich in colour. The must resulted rich in sugar, extract and acidity, with a low Ph. Only grapes that come from the Estate vineyards are vinified. Uncork and pour out a bit of wine from the bottles at least 8 hours before serving.
