93pts Robert Parker

The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a bright and pretty entry to the palate with red and purple fruits. It shows varietal acidity with a medium-bodied texture. The mouthfeel is not especially long, but it is fresh and the tannins are polished. Aging goes through a combination of steel, cement and oak. Fruit is sourced from over four hectares of vines, and 15,000 bottles were made.

Winemaker Notes

The color is ruby red with a slight tendency to garnet. The nose is intense and complex, spicy, with dominant notes of Amarena cherry. The olfactory phase continues on the palate. The flavor is full, harmonious and persistent, with dense and silky tannins.

 Situated in the splendid area of Northern Montalcino close to Biondi Santi’s Il Greppo and 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 first 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.
