2007 Brunello di Montalcino San Filippo

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with sweet dark cherries, scorched earth, tar, smoke and licorice. This is a big, extroverted Brunello, but it also shows fabulous overall balance. Intense and energetic, it captures the essence of the vintage in spades. Some slightly rough edges remain, but this is nevertheless a terrific effort from San Filippo. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. ||Roberto Giannelli's wines show great promise. Giannelli seems to do best with shorter wood aging regimes. When the Brunelli spend too much time in oak they lose a lot of the personality that makes his best wines distinctive.||A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including: de Grazia Imports; tel.
