The Wine Estate San Filippo lies in the heart of the most beautiful part of the Tuscan countryside, just two kilometres from Montalcino. This landscape, with its magnificent vineyards where the Brunello is made, and the yellow cornfields of the Val d’Orcia, has been declared a World Heritage site by Unesco. Offering a perfect combination of nature, art and the finest Tuscan food and wine, it is the ideal place to spend a relaxing holiday. The famous art cities of Siena and Florence are within easy reach of the Wine Estate San Filippo, as well as enchanting smaller towns such as Bagno VignoniPienzaMontepulciano, and the wild coastal region of the Maremma.

The San Filippo estate is actually a small hamlet. The main farmhouse, which also comprises a small chapel that is still consecrated, dates to 1672, as proved by various documents that are still conserved in the parish archives of Montalcino. The villa and the wine-growing estate, recently purchased by the present owner, have been completely renovated. The severity of the classic Tuscan farmhouse has been reinterpreted, without distorting its traditional restraint, to meet the requirements of modern quality lifestyles. San Filippo is a welcoming place, where guests can enjoy a charm and simplicity that is still entirely genuine.

The color on the 2015 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere is a ruby red with reflexes verging on garnet. The perfume is intense, fine and elegant, with notes of cherries preserved in alcohol, enriched with spices redolent of cinnamon and cloves. On the palate it explodes in all its fineness and elegance thanks to the dense and silky tannins. Excellent body that renders the flavor harmonious and persistent. Excellent nose-mouth correspondence.

Effusive aromas of black currant, blueberry, violet and iron mark this expressive red. Supple and harmonious, with a firm backbone of tannins that are refined and integrated. Shows terrific length and complexity. Best from 2023 through 2043.

Decadent aromas of ripe fruit, such as plums and peaches with black truffles and porcini mushrooms. Full body, with layers of ripe fruit and round and chewy tannins. Lots of chocolate and fresh mushroom at the finish. A thoroughly terroir-driven red.
