Biondi-Santi 1961 Brunello di Montalcino

Brunello di Montalcino is one of the great under-appreciated wines of Italy.  100% Sangiovese which undergoes an extended period of pre-fermentation maceration to extract maximum colour, flavour and tannins which affords the wine its ability to mature for long periods.  Brunello di Montalcino must be aged in oak for a minimum of 2 years, though traditionally winemakers - such as Biondi-Santi here - would age their Brunello in Slavonian oak for at least 3 years before release.
