Legendary Tuscan Winemaker Dinner: BIONDI SANTI
Brunello-lovers rejoice! The team at Ristorante Bartolotta dal 1993 will host an amazing dining event celebrating this legendary Tuscan winery. James Beard Award-winning chef, owner, and co-founder Paul Bartolotta has created a five-course Tuscan menu to pair with four different vintages of Biondi Santi wines. The team at Ristorante Bartolotta is very excited to welcome Tancredi Biondi Santi, owner of Biondi Santi, to this celebration of Tuscan food and wine.
Biondi Santi is a truly iconic estate: in the late 19th century it was the first in Montalcino to select the most appropriate Sangiovese plants from its own vineyards and then bottle the finished wine under the name of Brunello. This winery remains a beacon for traditionally made Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino. Some of the vintages from the 1880s and 1890s tasted in the 1990s, were still in fine condition. These wines show the true potential of the Sangiovese grape and define the elegance, power, and finesse of Montalcino.
