Le Lucére - San Filippo
Le Lucére by San Filippo
The colour is ruby red with reflexes verging on garnet. The perfume is intense, fine and elegant, with notes of cherries preserved in alcohol, enriched with spices redolent of cinnamon and cloves. On the palate it explodes in all its fineness and elegance thanks to the dense and silky tannins. Excellent body that renders the flavour harmonious and persistent. Excellent nose-mouth correspondence.
Decadent aromas of ripe fruit, such as plums and peaches with black truffles and porcini mushrooms. Full body, with layers of ripe fruit and round and chewy tannins. Lots of chocolate and fresh mushroom at the finish. A thoroughly terroir-driven red. Try after 2022.

The Wine Estate San Filippo lies in the heart of the most beautiful part of the Tuscan countryside, just two kilometres from Montalcino. This landscape, with its magnificent vineyards where the Brunello is made, and the yellow cornfields of the Val d’Orcia, has been declared a World Heritage site by Unesco. Offering a perfect combination of nature, art and the finest Tuscan food and wine, it is the ideal place to spend a relaxing holiday. The famous art cities of Siena and Florence are within easy reach of the Wine Estate San Filippo, as well as enchanting smaller towns such as Bagno Vignoni, Pienza, Montepulciano, and the wild coastal region of the Maremma.
The San Filippo estate is actually a small hamlet. The main farmhouse, which also comprises a small chapel that is still consecrated, dates to 1672, as proved by various documents that are still conserved in the parish archives of Montalcino. The villa and the wine-growing estate, recently purchased by the present owner, have been completely renovated. The severity of the classic Tuscan farmhouse has been reinterpreted, without distorting its traditional restraint, to meet the requirements of modern quality lifestyles. San Filippo is a welcoming place, where guests can enjoy a charm and simplicity that is still entirely genuine.
The pervading atmosphere of the Wine Estate San Filippo is one of pure relaxation, perfect for restful holidays or even just a week-end. It is also an excellent starting-point for exciting trips and itineraries to visit the most important sites of Tuscany. The return to the serene peace of the Estate afterwards will be even more enticing.
The delightful natural landscape of the Val d’Orcia is particularly suitable for walking, trekking and excursions by mountain bike. The nearby spa of Bagno Vignoni offers a variety of health and body care treatments. In the vicinity there are numerous attractive towns that are well worth a visit, including Montalcino, Montepulciano, Monticchiello and Pienza. Particularly in summer, but also in other periods, there is a wide range of cultural events such as theatre festivals and music festivals of international standing.
Within a just slightly wider radius, guests can also easily reach the most important cities of Tuscany - Siena, Florence and Arezzo - as well as places of major tourist appeal such as San Gimignano and Chianti. And if this is not enough, just a little further southwards lies the beautiful and wild coastal region of the Maremma.
