Lot #741. Biondi-Santi (Il Greppo) Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1975

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 96 AG.
"The 1975 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is dark, powerful and intense, with gorgeous depth and fabulous resonance. Dusty black cherries, smoke, spices, tobacco, game and earthiness flesh out in a broad, ample Brunello endowed with magnificent depth, power and intensity. Bright veins of acidity give the finish an extra kick of salinity, but overall this is a dark, brooding Brunello that shows the masculine side of Sangiovese. The textural impression is of unctuous and reminiscent of a demi-glace. The 1975 keeps getting better and better with time in the glass. There is no rush to drink the 1975. Well-stored or reconditioned bottles will drink well for another 10-15 years. This bottle was reconditioned on September 5, 2000." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Mar 2015
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Notes: Very top shoulder, very lightly scuffed, very lightly bin soiled capsule. #1154, #1156.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,800
