    "One of the highlights in this tasting, the 1964 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is off the charts. Dark, deep and dense for a wine of its age, the 1964 impresses from the outset for its pure pedigree. A wine of raw, almost animal power, the 1964 explodes from the glass with huge fruit and tons of pure intensity for a 50 year-old wine. Smoke, graphite, game, tobacco, licorice and dark spices flesh out in an ample, full-bodied Brunello that exudes personality. Wild, gamy notes punctuate the boisterous finish. Biondi-Santi's 1964 Riserva is everything that Sangiovese in Montalcino is and can be." (97 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Mar. 2015)
