"Such beautiful, subtle ripe strawberry and floral aromas. Full-bodied, with sweet, ripe tannins and fruit. Long and gorgeous. Layered and persistent. Best after 2012. 335 cases made. "

"Situated in the splendid area of Montalcino close to Biondi Santi?s Il Greppo and our very own Le Macioche, the wines of San Filippo are ageworthy 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 was the ?rst year of production), the estate was recently purchased by Roberto Giannelli who restored and renovated the entire facility. With the help of Paolo Caciorgna, Gianelli is producing 2500 cases of Brunello aged in Slavonian and Allier oak casks each year, as well as 800 cases of a delicious
Rosso di Montalcino aged 6 months in used barriques and large casks. Antonio Galloni of the Wine Advocate gave the 2003 Brunello 90 points, citing its attractive richness and volume." ~ Winery notes
