Following the 2010 will always be challenging, but I’m relieved that 2011 Biondi Santi was an absolute joy. The nose and palate are refined and pure, exhibiting a beautiful, airy red cherry interwoven with subtle oak characteristics.

This is wine evidently still growing into itself, almost like a great young Volnay; there is headroom for the palate to expand. Most impressive is the length; wonderful tannins taper and build exquisitely.

The 2010 will impress with its weight and power, but the 2011 will impress equally with its finesse and ethereal finish.
