About Brunello Di Montalcino 2013 Le Lucere, San Filippo

Situated in the splendid area of Northern Montalcino close to Biondi Santi's 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.

2013 was an outstanding vintage for Brunello and this and the Wine Spectator scored this 95 points saying "As much savory as fruity, this offers a fine balance between cherry, leather, spice and carob aromas and flavors. Rich yet lively, leaving a mouthwatering impression on the long, saline aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2035."

and James Suckling scored this 96 points saying "Subtle and complete aromas of cherry, flowers, and orange peel. Full body, round and velvety tannins. So pretty and refined. Polished. A gorgeous wine. Drink or hold."
