The San Filippo estate in Montalcino is the Brunello estate which is enjoying great international success

The property covers 22 hectares, of which 10 are planted with vines, 1 with olive groves and 11 with woods. The architecture consists of the original central body, dating back to the eighteenth century, which also includes a small church, and 4 buildings with 2 underground cellars. There are four vineyards: La Storta (north-east exposure), Le Raffiche (north), La Smarrita (south-west) and Le Lucère (east / north-east). Roberto Giannelli buys the property transforming his life in 2002. A radical change of life, amidst many doubts and the solid support of his wife. The guiding idea is to accompany the expression of the vineyards by supporting the potential of nature and using agronomic practices in the best possible way, minimizing other interventions, and adopting an organic farming regime. It began by revolutionizing the countryside, with great attention to the timing of the vineyard. Systemic plant protection products were abandoned almost immediately and within three years, customized biological protocols were created for each vineyard. All improvements that took a long time and therefore a lot of patience. Even the research of the cellar oenologist was meticulous but, from their first meeting, the hand of Paolo Caciorgna is still behind all the wines of the company. Last year's 100 points of Brunello Le Lucere 2015 are just the most recent confirmation of what many connoisseurs have known for some time: San Filippo wines are expressing a crescendo of uncompromising quality. The 2016 vintage, on the market for two weeks, promises unprecedented internal competition between 2 consecutive years. James Suckling in fact declares that "2016 would have been the greatest vintage ever for Brunello were it not for 2015".
