Details for San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucére 2015
Bottle size and vintage
The eastern side of Montalcino, San Filippo is the Brunello winery founded in the 1970s by Roberto Giannelli around a wonderful structure steeped in history, which dates back to the seventeenth century. The vineyards, with mainly north-eastern exposures, are on the typical soils of Eocene origin, with medium-clayey areas mixed with marl and limestone areas.
In the vineyard, with a sustainability focus, the philosophy is that of the analytical selection of the grapes. In the cellar the approach is moderately modernist, with ageing that takes place partially in small barrels. For the rest, the style of Brunello di San Filippo is essential and traditional.
Le Lucere is the winery’s cru. The grapes are harvested in early October. The wine first undergoes ageing in steel, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation, and then rests for just over two years in large and small barrels. It is marketed after 10 months of further ageing in the bottle.
The colour is ruby red with garnet reflections. The bouquet is intense, fine and elegant, with notes of cherries in alcohol enriched with spices reminiscent of cinnamon and cloves. On the palate it explodes in all its finesse and elegance thanks to the dense and silky tannins. The body is excellent and makes drinking harmonious and persistent.
