As Brunello di Montalcino won the hearts of the American collector and wine enthusiast over the past few decades, there's a tendency to think of it as a region with a significant say in Tuscan wine history. However, Brunello di Montalcino didn't even have an appellation until 1980! This immature region was omitted from inclusion in the original round of DOC creations that happened in the late 1960s. That's largely because for most of the 20th century, Biondi-Santi was the leading light of a very small group of producers championing these terroirs. The very first vintage of Biondi-Santi, the 1865 Select Red Wine (Brunello), was shown in 1867 at the Paris Expo. Since then, Biondi-Santi has been the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti of the Tuscan wine world, simply the most iconic, greatest, longest lived Sangiovese in the region.  In the five-star 2015 vintage, this Rosso di Montalcino drinks in much the same vein as its older brother, and has the depth and power to command a price point. For those of you who have wanted to try the iconic Brunello's, here is a less expensive way to try the producer's ethereal style from a top vintage. Also, from Antonio Galloni: "The 2015 Rosso di Montalcino is absolutely gorgeous. Sweet tobacco, dried red cherry, cedar, rosemary, mint and anise give the Rosso lovely aromatic complexity, but it is the wine's body and resonance that stand out most. A wine of real stature and depth, Biondi-Santi's 2015 Rosso is all class, not to mention a real overachiever in my tastings and a rare Rosso that delivers the goods big time. Sadly, it won't come cheaply."
