The transparency of fruit to this wine is so pretty with sliced black cherries and orange peel. Fresh and aromatic. Full body. Tight and polished with ultra-fine tannins and an intense and focused finish. A beauty. Drink after 2022.

Fruity and elegant, with cherry, strawberry, floral and mineral notes plying the lacy texture. Shows terrific balance and complexity. There is no shortage of structure and the finish blazes a path to glory. Best from 2022 through 2042.

The San Filippo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino walks across the palate with light and carefree footsteps. The wine is crisp and lean with classic Sangiovese aromas of wild berry fruit, forest floor, bitter almond and pressed blue violets. The wine remains mild mannered in the mouth with silky tannins and a pretty spot of freshness on the close. With this wine, you get an immediate and accessible Brunello that could be great in the near term on your local restaurant list.
The color is ruby red with a slight tendency to garnet. The perfume 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.
