Reviews

Wine Advocate

93 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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. Production is 15,000 bottles." 11/20

James Suckling

96 Points, James Suckling: A serene and intensely structured Brunello with cherry, cedar, walnut, and dry-earth aromas with </br>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. Try after 2023." 11/20

Wine Spectator

97 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: “Plenty of balsamic aromas preview this red, settling into a core of macerated cherry and plum fruit, framed by juniper, thyme, Scotch broom, tar and iodine. Racy and harmonious, with a solid layer of tannins underneath. Best from 2024 through 2047. 1,300 cases made, 700 cases imported.” 03/21
