Lot #818. Biondi-Santi (Tenuta Greppo) Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 1985

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 18 WaSp.
"It looks like at some stage the B-S wines just don't lose colour any further. This is a little more developed than the 2015 Riserva (with which it was tasted) but not by much. Deep balsamic nose with hints of dried cherry and with aeration perfumed fruit. Really deep and a little mysterious. Spice and hints of orange skin. Keeps on evolving and changing in the glass. Truly multi-layered and with the classic Biondi-Santi waxy cherry fruit. Vibrant acidity and then gorgeous cool cherry. Waxy hints and fantastic fine long tannins." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com, Mar 2022
Provenance: The Avoriaz Cellar
Notes: OC. Top shoulder, very lightly scuffed and very lightly wrinkled capsule, very lightly wrinkled vintage neck tag.
