Montalcino is an old town sitting on a hilltop overlooking vine. Its biggest treasure, besides the scenic views and quaint architecture, is the wine. Though the town is small, its Brunello di Montalcino is famous all over the world.
At first, the name “Brunello” didn’t refer to the wine but, actually, to the grape that grew around Montalcino. In fact, locals still call the Sangiovese Grosso grape Brunello. The word “Brunello” means “a small brown one” describing the brown coloring of the grapes’ skin.
The very Brunello di Montalcino vintage dates back to the year 1863. The man behind it is Ferruccio Biondi-Santi. The Biondi-Santi family has become a winemaking royalty. Little by little, the wine made a name for itself, mainly for its long life cycle. In those times wines were made to be drunk young. It wasn’t long the rest of the producers in the area caught up with the idea and the quality that comes with it.
Brunello di Montalcino is so famous it has been served at the most imposing tables, to important people, and at ravishing events. This is quite interesting since the knowledge of this wine was practically exclusive to the Montalcino area until the mid-'60s!
