About this wine:
San Filippo is situated in the splendid area of Northern Montalcino, close to the famed Biondi Santi's Il Greppo and La Serena vineyards. The wines of San Filippo are age-worthy and elegant, though very approachable in their youth. The estate totals 22 hectares, 11 of which are under vine, dedicated mostly to Sangiovese, with a small olive grove as well. Founded in 1972 (1977 marked the release of their first Brunello), the estate was recently purchased by Roberto Giannelli who restored and renovated the entire facility. With the help of Paolo Caciorgna, Roberto is producing only 1250 cases of Brunello and the same quantity of his single vineyard "Le Lucere", both aged in Slavonian and Allier oak casks.

Ratings & Reviews

93+ Points - Vinous Media:
"Bright red with a pale rim. Pungently floral and spicy notes of cardamom and rose complicate red cherry aromas and flavors. Boasts a steely backbone and a very fresh, piercing personality. The long, very flinty finish showcases an enticing rising quality with aeration." - Ian d'Agata (Apr 2018)

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Sweet plum and cherry flavors course through this round, fleshy red, with supporting roles from earth, spcie, and tobacco notes. Balanced yet firm enough, with excellent freshness on the long finish. Best from 2021 through 2035." - BS (Jun 2018)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Riper style with dried berry character that turns to flowers. Full body, very fruity with tannins that are covered with plum and cherry flavors. A friendly and opulnet red. Drink or hold." (Nov 2017)
