Aromas of crushed raspberries, cherries and blackberries expand on your senses. There are also freshly sliced mushrooms, wet earth and bark. It's full-bodied, with an incredible depth of fruit and a savory, salty, almost grilled meat character. Layers and layers of fruit and tannins. A truly great wine. Better in 2020.
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Monica Larner - Aged two years in oak, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucére is expressive and deep with thick lines and a profound sense of extraction. This is a lovely wine that occupies a special place on the opulent side of the Brunello spectrum. Of course, the amazing quality of fruit in 2010 has given winemakers more variables and raw material to play with. The wine shows dark concentration and an impenetrable appearance. Dried fruit, clove, nutmeg and toasted almond segue to cola, licorice and pressed rose petal. The mouthfeel is sweet and chewy but the overall effect is spectacular. This wine marks a huge improvement over past efforts.
San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere is ruby red with glints verging on garnet. The aromas are intense, fine and elegant, with notes of cherries preserved in alcohol, enriched with spices like cinnamon and cloves. On the palate, the wine explodes in all its fineness and elegance thanks to the dense and silky tannins. Excellent body that renders the flavor harmonious and persistent. Excellent nose-palate harmony.
