      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      A wonderful Brunello di Montalcino with a generous bouquet of red berries, cherries and spices that contrast perfectly. Slim and firm with ethereal hints on the palate, the harmonious taste with great finesse goes towards a lingering finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "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." James Suckling

      "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 (vinous.com)

      "Sweet plum and cherry flavors course through this round, fleshy red, with supporting roles from earth, spice and tobacco notes. Balanced yet firm enough, with excellent freshness on the long finish." Wine Spectator

      Bright red with a bright edge. Opulent bouquet of herbs, small red berries and rose petals. Precise and well structured on the palate, fleshy body with a potpourri of spice, tobacco and cherry notes. The tannins harmonize perfectly with the fruit, with increasing aeration it shows its muscular backbone and personality until a long final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "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." Wine Spectator

      "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." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Expressive and deep, the 2016 edition of San Filippo's Brunello di Montalcino presents itself. This is a beautiful, expressive wine that clearly has a special place on the opulent side of the Brunello spectrum. Of course, the amazing quality of the fruit in 2016 gave the winemakers a terrific template with which to play superbly, but the result is much more than the sum of its parts: A downright impenetrable appearance in the glass, then on the nose dried fruit, cloves, nutmeg and toasted almonds, delicately rounded out by dried rose petals. The mouthfeel is sweet and mellow, layered and finessed - a spectacular overall impression. With each sip, its power and muscles become tangible, but it never becomes monotonous and clumsy - on the contrary: it rushes confidently and with storm and urge into a furious final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The San Filippo 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers a slightly exotic personality with smoked cedar, mahogany or teak followed by dark fruit, pressed blackberry and plum. The wine ages in large oak cask for two years. This is a robustly textured and muscular Brunello with full-bodied intensity that transcends both the bouquet and the mouthfeel. There's a lot going on, especially in terms of the wine's smokiness and spiciness, and there is good acidity and tannic structure to frame it all." Robert Parker

      "A serene and intensely structured Brunello with cherry, cedar, walnut and dry-earth aromas with some burnt-lemon undertones. Full-bodied, yet with very fine tannins that are extremely polished and beautiful. Goes on for minutes. A gorgeous young wine." James Suckling

      Brunello di Montalcino “Le Lucére” DOCG 2012

      Dark ruby with garnet inclusions. Beautiful dark fruit, plus plum, spice and tobacco. Le Lucere has a subtle oak spice and the strength and endurance of Sangiovese. He already presents himself as a worthy representative of his appellation at a young age and will gain even more elegance over the years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of red forest fruits, cloves and leather; clear texture, the tannins polished, in balance with the acidity, persistently fruity in the finish, combines elegance with character. Vinum

      "A dense, backward red, with plenty of cherry, plum, spice and eucalyptus flavors. A broad swath of tannins and juicy acidity carry the long finish, but patience is required for all the facets to emerge. Shows excellent potential." Wine Spectator

      "Wow. This is really fantastic with outstanding depth of fruit and ripe and silky tannins. So much blueberry and cedar character with hints of flowers. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Lovely balance to this wine." James Suckling

      "This is a terrific wine from San Filippo. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino le Lucére is plush and rich in all the right places. It opens to a generous bouquet with tones of dark fruit and spice that contrast each other nicely. The wine straddles a position between primary aromas (directly from the fruit) and secondary aromas (derived from oak aging). The effect is well balanced and the intensity of the wine feels brighter and more harmonious as a result. The mouthfeel is compact and firm. It wine shows good persistence in terms of finish."

      "Bright red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of pink flowers, sour red cherry and strawberry. Fresh and juicy but also dense and deep, this boasts captivating sugar-acid-tannin balance. Finishes long and perfumed; despite its sneaky concentration and size, it also has a light-on-its-feet quality that is very typical of this wine." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      Brunello di Montalcino “Le Lucére” DOCG 2016

      Deep dark ruby with bright garnet reflections. Impressive, deep bouquet of dried fruits, cloves, nutmeg and roasted almonds up to cola, liquorice and pressed rose petals. In the drink it unfolds its spectacular variety and opulence paired with a fine fruit sweetness. Le Lucere 2016 has an extraordinary race and personality and has catapulted itself into the top group of the appellation with this exceptional vintage. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere takes things to a darker and more earthy place. Flowery undergrowth, wet stone and tobacco lift from the glass, taking on fresher notes of raspberry and sage over time. There’s a gorgeous interplay of velvety textures, salty minerals and lifting acidity in the mouth, as well as fine tannins which blend to create a classically balanced impression. Red fruits linger along with hints of licorice and minty herbs, while the structure of the 2016 Le Lucere takes a back seat through the finale. This is a very well constructed effort that should excel over the medium term." Vinous

      "This special selection of fruit from San Filippo is characterized by more intensity and concentration compared to the estate's classic Brunello. In this vintage, I also discovered a greater level of Sangiovese purity and direction, thanks to tight berry tones, dusty mineral, spice and balsam herb. To the palate, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino le Lucére delivers succulent fruit and even a touch of sweetness, all powered by tannins, clearly driven by both the oak and the fruit itself." Robert Parker

      "This is rich and very linear at the same time, with cherry, tile, walnut and light chocolate aromas. Some mahogany. Very complex. Full-bodied, yet tight and reserved with a very, very long finish. Really gorgeous." James Suckling

      Brunello di Montalcino “Le Lucére” Riserva DOCG 2012

      Grandioser Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Le Lucere with countless, finely layered aromas such as rose petals, red cherries, flowers, herbs and spices. There is a nice tension between primary aromas of the fruit and secondary aromas of maturation in large oak wood. Elegant, full-bodied and muscular on the palate, impressive depth and silky tannins, long and intense. Enthused today and with a promising future. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Wow. This is really fantastic with outstanding depth of fruit and ripe and silky tannins. So much blueberry and cedar character with hints of flowers. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Lovely balance to this wine. Better after 2022 but already exciting to taste." James Suckling

      "A broad, mouthfilling style, boasting black cherry, plum, leather, chocolate and spice aromas and flavors. A riper style, yet not soft, with more support from dense tannins than acidity. Finishes with a dusty aftertaste of tobacco and graphite." Wine Spectator

      "This wine pours from the bottle with deep, dark intensity. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva le Lucére shows thick extraction and deep concentration of dark fruit, cherry marmalade and blackberry preserves. Black prune and dried fig also play supporting roles, with a strong showing by exotic spice and savory tobacco. This is a Big Brunello with two capital Bs. It ages in small oak barrel for 14 months and then does another 16 months of aging in botte grande. It shows thick textural richness in the mouth." Robert Parker

      Brunello di Montalcino “Le Lucére” Riserva DOCG 2015

      Finely layered aromas of rose petals, red cherries, flowers, herbs and spices. Wonderful tension between primary flavors of fruit and secondary flavors of aging in large oak. Elegant, full-bodied and muscular on the palate, impressive depth and silky tannins, long and intense. Excites already today and with a promising future. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere Riserva blends dusty ripe cherries and earth tones, with notes of sage and exotic spice to form a slightly extroverted yet gorgeous display. It boasts creamy textures cast across a medium-bodied frame, yet it’s wonderfully balanced by zesty, mouthwatering acidity. Cherries, blackberries and currants can all be found here, along with salty minerals adding a tactile feel under an air of violet florals. This is tamed by fine tannins through the finish, ending with a youthfully restrained yet fresh display. The 2015 Riserva is packed full of character and fruit-forward, it’s sure to have a lot of fans." Vinous

      "The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva le Lucére reveals rich and well-concentrated fruit with blackberry, prune and plum. The bouquet also has a moment of scorched earth or toasted oak that is quite developed and, to my palate, subtracts from the purity of the fruit. It is only made in the best years, and this edition saw 4,000 bottles produced. There are soft cherry notes on the finish." Robert Parker

      "The opulence and decadence is really something here with dried fruit, figs, meat and black truffles on the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied, layered and creamy with intense, round tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Best after 2022, but already a joy to taste." James Suckling

    About the winemakersSan FilippoTuscany | Montalcino
    San Filippo

    A farm just east of the bizarre little town high up on the hill above the vineyards, with a chapel dating back to the 17th century. Not many farms in Montalcino are rooted in such old estates. The estate covers about 22 hectares, more than half of which are planted with wine. The Sangiovese Grosso dominates, as the clone typical of Montalcino is called here. Add some Syrah and Merlot, which are used in the cuvée for the delicious Rosso Sant'Land Antimo. Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino are naturally 100% Sangiovese.

    Brunello has been produced here since 1972, so the first bottle of Brunello San Filippo came onto the market in 1977. All four vineyards are located in one of Montalcino's best regions, with calcareous marl soils in fairly hilly terrain. The wines are rare and always quickly sold out, because there is not much of it. Finally, only 5.5 hectares are declared for Brunello di Monatlcino DOCG. With a planting density of approx. 4,000 vines per hectare, this results in only little of the top wines. Only 12,000 bottles of Brunello Le Lucere 2012 were filled. For the whole world. Definitely not enough.

    Since 1990, San Filippo has been owned by Roberto Giannelli, who systematically renovated all the buildings and the cellar, slowly but surely getting the vineyards into shape and converting them to organic farming. Gradually it became a real show vineyard. The oenologist Paolo Caciorgna leaves the grapes long time and forms powerful elegant wines, which get meanwhile everywhere highest valuations, even James Sucklingdrew with the 2010er Le Lucere the desired 100 points. Richard Gere also fell in love with the wine and even ordered an "private label". SUPERIORE.DE
