Join us for dinner in Hong Kong with the CEO of Biondi-Santi, Giampiero Bertolini, who will participate in person. Experience what makes the wines of this historic Tuscan producer so special, as we look both into the past – the deep tradition of this estate – and into the future, as the estate continues to innovate.
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. But so does deep research, analysis and innovation, as the estate continues to look to the future.
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 avoiding the formulaically bland international anonymity of so many wines today. We will explore the range of wines of the estate, discuss styles and vintages, and finish with a 1999 Brunello di Montalcino «La Storica» from the estate’s wine library.
This is an intimate, small-scale dinner, with limited seats available, so please don’t delay in securing yours, and we look forward to seeing you on 4th October.
