Pioneer of the Modern Sangiovese: The Biondi Santi family has been a Tuscan icon synonymous with high quality Sangiovese. Their origin can be traced back to the mid-1800s when Clemente Santi produced a 100% Sangiovese wine that could stand the test of time. Over the decades, the Santi family's ongoing pursuit for excellence has pushed the boundaries of what Sangiovese can achieve in the region. 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. An extraordinary wine heritage, the fruit of over a century and a half of history is now in the capable hands Jacopo Biondi-Santi, who in the spirit of his ancestors has given life to new family of wines combining tradition and innovation.
Jacopo Biondi Santi acquired the Montepò Castle, in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, where the Sangiovese grape can reach its apogee. Here, Jacopo has dedicated himself to the growing of Sangiovese Grosso and the creation of labels that express all the vigorous individuality of a man determined to build an even brighter future for his own family. An intense work where experience, intuition and oenological artistry all come together, undertaken by Jacopo Biondi Santi together with his children Tancredi, Clemente and Clio.
(Did you know? The Biondi Santi family had a clone of Sangiovese named after them. The BBS 11, or the Biondi Santi 11, was isolated by Jacopo’s father Franco Biondi Santi. It was characterized by its ability to age for an extremely long time.)
