About Biondi-Santi

Without the Biondi-Santi family’s Il Greppo estate, Brunello wouldn’t exist. Clemente Santi made the first wine called Brunello in 1869, and his son... Ferruccio further isolated the BBS1 clone of the Sangiovese grape, which the family had named “Brunello,” or the little brown one. Ferruccio, who founded the Il Greppo estate in 1880, dedicated his life’s work to crafting a long-aging monovarietal wine with this grape. Tancredi Biondi-Santi, Ferruccio’s son, brought Brunello to the world and instilled practices like “topping off” aging bottles of Brunello Riserva. Franco Biondi-Santi, who passed away in 2013, maintained the estate’s traditions and created a legacy in the process. Today’s Il Greppo is helmed by Jacopo and Alessandra Biondi-Santi, Franco’s children, though French corporation EPI holds a majority stake in the estate. Under this new control, Biondi-Santi’s vineyards are being replanted and upgrades are being made to the cantina; however, the 67-acre Il Greppo estate continues its practice of crafting fine, age-worthy Brunello and captivating Rosso di Montalcino wines. Indeed, the estate extended the aging time of its Brunello from five to six years, and it’s started special paired releases of a recent Brunello Riserva with a mature bottling, both commitments to the belief that while time may pass, but a Biondi-Santi Brunello is eternal.

Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Riserva Gran Bussia 2006 1.5L

About Poderi Aldo Conterno

Poderi Aldo Conterno rose to fame by crafting some of the best-known, best-loved cru Barolo expressions in its Barolo Romirasco, Colonnello, and... Cicala, as well as its Chardonnay Bussiador and its Quartetto, a red wine that blends Nebbiolo with international grapes. In 1969, Aldo Conterno famously parted ways with his brother at their father’s estate, Giacomo Conterno, and founded Poderi Aldo Conterno in the “Favot” cellar on 61 acres in Bussia of Monforte d'Alba, the heart of Barolo country. Aldo’s vision was to craft wines that blended traditional structure, grace, and longevity with exquisitely transparent terroir, seductive juiciness, and a clearly defined personality. Before his death in 2012, Aldo achieved all this and more, creating a winemaking legacy that set him apart as one of the world’s greatest winemakers. The Aldo Conterno estate continues Aldo’s remarkable winemaking work in the hands of his three sons, Franco, Stefano, and Giacomo.
