The color is ruby red with a slight tendency to garnet. The perfume is intense and complex, spicy, with dominant notes of Amarena cherry. The olfactory phase continues on the palate. The flavor is full, harmonious, and persistent, with dense and silky tannins.
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.
