Biondi-Santi: The Epic Vintages 1955-1975

I still remember the first time I drove by Biondi-Santi’s Il Greppo property. That driveway, the neatly manicured cypresses and the estate that was barely visible in the distance. It all suggested an aura of mystery that was at once seemingly unattainable yet also incredibly alluring. It’s all part of the mystique that has informed the Biondi-Santi Brunellos for well over a hundred years.

2013 Theo Minges Scheurebe Spätlese, 91 points

Theo Minges has a deft hand for Scheurebe, that wildly tantalizing offspring of Riesling that deserves more serious attention, especially when vinified - as it is here – in the Spätlese style. Its enticing aromas of currant leaf, grapefruit and coconut would turn the head of a fallen angel. (JP)

Giuseppe Rinaldi 1986 Barolo delle Brunate Riserva Speciale

“Would you like to taste an older wine,” asks Beppe Rinaldi. Are you kidding? In all of the years I have been visiting the estate, this is the first time Rinaldi has offered to open an older bottle from his personal collection.
