Remembering the “Doctor” of Brunello

It has been a year since Franco Biondi Santi passed away, the “Doctor” of Brunello and the custodian of the family knowledge that made Sangiovese and Montalcino famous, and his presence still remains in the territory, his gentle and charismatic figure. At the funeral, Father Andrea, confidant and family friend, conveyed the soul and nature of this great man in his words, “an honest man, intelligent, capable and willing, who welcomed me into his home as if I were family. The “Doctor” who dedicated his life and his experience to his family, his Brunello and the entire community of Montalcino, who, every day upon waking, looked out the window and thanked the Lord for the nature that surrounded him and that he loved deeply.”
