More Information
Jacopo Biondi Santi comes from the famous Brunello di Montalcino family. In the mid 1800s, a local farmer named Clemente Santi isolated certain plantings of Sangiovese vines with the aim to produce a 100% varietal wine that could be aged for a considerable period of time. In 1888, Ferruccio Biondi-Santi released the first "modern version" of Brunello di Montalcino that was aged for over a decade in large wood barrels. Jacopo is the fifth generation in this illustrious family line. Today, the Sangiovese Grosso clone developed by the family is known as BBS11 (Brunello Biondi Santi 11)In addition to Montalcino, the BBS11 Sangiovese clone has also been planted in the Etruscan coastal area of Maremma, near Grosseto. Here Jacopo works his family estate with loving care. The Castello di Montepo is a medieval fortress with 500 hectares of land and about 60 hectares of vineyards. Montepo was the castle from which Jacopo’s great-grandfather cloned and registered the first Sangiovese for Brunello.Sassoalloro is the flagship of the estate. This Super-Tuscan is made from 100% Sangiovese grosso (BBS 11).
