Join us for this special dinner on Wednesday 21st July to showcase the fine Brunello di Montalcino red wines from Biondi-Santi. Giampaiero Bertolini, CEO of Biondi-Santi will join us from Florence via Zoom at the beginning of the dinner, to introduce the estate, and three new release wines – the 2017 ‘Rosso’, 2015 ‘Brunello’ and 2013 ‘Riserva’.
Chef de Cuisine Aven Lau and the team at Bâtard will serve a menu put together especially for these wines.
Biondi-Santi is the inventor of Brunello di Montalcino, the most noble expression of the Sangiovese grape in Tuscany. An aristocratic family, they were the first to pioneer a fine red wine capable of long ageing that would sit alongside the greatest wines of Europe. Extremely high standards, combined with a great terroir, old vines, traditional maturation in large oak botti and then bottle, remain the order of the day.
What is additionally so impressive about Biondi-Santi is its true-to-place individuality. Complexity of fragrance and flavour, and fine tension between fruit acidity and tannin lend timelessness and avoid the formulaically bland international anonymity of so many wines today.
Wines to be served:
2017 Rosso di Montalcino DOC
2015 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
2012 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG
2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG
Final details of the menu will follow. A very limited number of seats is available for this event – please don’t delay buying yours, and we look forward to seeing you on 21st July.
