San Filippo was one of the original 20 growers that started bottling Brunello in the late 1970s. The arid property located in Northern Montalcino lies facing the famous Biondi Santi’s Il Greppo vineyard. The house style is structured elegance with complex minerality and well-polished age worthy fruit.
The Siro Pacenti 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne shows an extra degree of concentration and thickness thanks both to the vintage (this hot and dry growing season produced darker, more intense berries) and the older vines that also work toward greater fruit weight. The Vecchie Vigne shows lots of depth and textural weaving with dark berries and oak spice. It offers long-lasting notes of smoke, sweet cedar and woodshop.
