Brunello Di Montalcino 2012 Le Lucere, San Filippo
Situated in the splendid area of Northern Montalcino close to Biondi Santiís Il Greppo and La Serena, the wines of San Filippo are ageworthy and elegant, though very approachable in their youth. The estate has just 26 acres under vine. Founded in 1972 the estate was recently purchased by Roberto Giannelli who restored and renovated the entire facility. Roberto is producing this Brunello from their best single vineyard. It's aged in Slavonian and Allier oak casks. James Suckling scored this 98 points saying "This is an incredible 2012 with fantastic depth, richness, focus and tension. Full body, polished and velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Goes on for minutes. Better in 2020 but a joy to taste now. One of the wines of the vintage." On SALE!
