Rome, April 8 - Iconic Brunello di Montalicino
producer Franco Biondi Santi, dubbed the "gentleman of Brunello"
died on Sunday at the age of 91.
Biondi Santi was considered the 'guardian' of the famous
Tuscan red that his family invented and a staunch opponent to
modernizing the wine his estate has produced since 1888.
He is credited with having stoked Brunello's phenomenal
success, and steered cleared of an alleged blending scandal
known as Brunellogate that rocked a number of Tuscan wineries in
2008.
Biondi Santi's Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1955 was the
only Italian wine to enter Wine Spectator's top 12 wines of the
1900s.
