The “Riserva” is produced from Greppo’s Sangiovese
vineyards of over 25 years of age and is made only
in exceptionally good years.

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.

vineyards between 10 and 25 years old.
The “Annata” is aged 36 months in Slavonian oak casks.
The basic characteristic of the Brunello of Greppo Biondi Santi
is its longevity. The “Annata” type will age between 20 and 40 years.

be opened and a bit of wine poured out at least 8 hours before drinking.

Serving temperature: 18°C.
   
   
rosso di montalcino doc fascia rossa
At “Greppo” it is also produced a Rosso di Montalcino
which is made from vineyards over 10 years of age: the “Red Stripe”.
It is a direct descendant of “Greppo’s” Brunello, but made in
those years with less than ideal weather conditions, when Biondi Santi deems the organoleptic characteristics of the wine insufficient for the production of Brunello di Montalcino.
None-the-less this makes for a splendid Rosso di Montalcino,
which is aged 12 months in Slavonian oak casks.

Serving temperature: 16°C.
   
   
rosso di montalcino doc

The Rosso di Montalcino “White Label” comes from the
younger Sangiovese-grosso-vineyards
(between 5 and 10 years old) of Greppo Estate.
It also ages for 12 month in Slavonian oak casks and it is
a wine ready to drink, young and fruity.
Both wines have a quite intense ruby red colour, typical
and intense perfume, they are dry, warm, tasty and lightly tannic.

Serving temperature: 16 C°.

   
   
rosato di toscana igt

The last born created by Franco Biondi Santi.
It is a pink ruby coloured wine , with a nose of violet and
light vanilla, produced by vinifying in white
the grapes of Sangiovese from the Greppo Estate
and aged for 18 months in stainless steel vats.

Serving temperature: Aperitif 10°C, Whole meal 16° - 18°C

   
   
olio extra vergine di oliva

From the olive groves of “Greppo” , a very good extra virgin
olive oil is produced. It is produced in traditional ways with
different olives varietals: Correggiolo, Leccino, Moraiolo
and Olivastra of Montalcino.
The olives are hand picked and are ground with stone
millstone and cold pressed.
We don’t filter the oil to keep its organoleptic characteristics intact.
The eventual presence of a small dark crust will form
only a few months after bottling, and is due to the slow
settling of tiny pieces of the olives' skin floating in the oil.
The oil should be stored in a cold, dark place,
with bottles in an up-right position.

Storage temperature: more then 10° C.
