Welcome to episode 959, another installment of ‘On The Road Edition’, hosted by Stevie Kim. Today Stevie is interviewing Giampiero Bertolini of the Biondi Santi Group.
More about the winery:
Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most famous wines in Italy, and it is synonymous with the Biondi Santi family. The first recorded mention of Brunello was in 1869, when Clemente Santi won two silver medals for his “vino rosso scelto (Brunello) del 1865” at Montepulciano’s agricultural fair. His grandson Ferruccio inherited Clemente’s estates. Although there were other local families producing Brunello at the end of the 1800’s, most stopped during the early 20th century and post World War II. Biondi Santi is the only winery that has continuously produced Brunello. Now in the 7th generation of winemakers, the Biondi-Santi family continues to produce great wines. Located in the heart of Montalcino, the Tenuta Greppo estate sprawls over 25 hectares of vines on soils rich in heavy stones and marl.
