The luxurious farmhouse of Il Greppo sits in a propitious position where the terroir for viticulture has been appreciated for centuries.

The 47 hectares that play host to 80 years old vines are the product of the vision of Franco Biondi-Santi who began work on expanding the family holdings in 1988. With Il Greppo at the centre, Franco began to weave a tapestry of vines following the contours of the land.

The solid of this amphitheatre are rich in stony marls known locally as galestro which feed the Sangiovese Grosso (the Brunello Biondi-Santi, or BBS11 clone) which produces aromatic and expressive age-worthy Brunello di Montalcino that offer a freshness born of high altitudes, cool nights and vinification in cement vats. The wines are raised in large traditional Slavonian oak casks known as botti.
