"Lots of sliced mushroom, dark fruit and some bark. Full-bodied and very ripe with plum, prune and salt undertones. Chewy firmness. Wonderful backbone of tannins. Almost as good as the 2010. Drink now or hold."
" Skirting the eastern hills around the town of Montalcino, San Filippo has 11 hectares of vines planted to clay-based, calcareous soils. San Filippo was established in 1972 and began estate bottling as early as 1977. Now owned by Roberto Giannelli, San Filippo creates some of the most clean and precise Brunellos in all of Montalcino. It is fermented in a blend of stainless steel, wood and cement before spending two years in French barriques.
Situated in the splendid area of Northern Montalcino close to Biondi Santi’s Il Greppo and our very own La Serena, 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, Roberto 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.
