San Filippo is in Montalcino. It was founded in 1972 and is today owned by Roberto Giannelli, who has renovated the 53-acre estate extensively, paying close attention to the 27 acres of vineyards. The estate takes its name from a small, 17th century chapel built by a local landowner who wanted to show his gratitude for good harvests by holding regular religious services. Today the small chapel is part of the San Filippo estate. San Filippo produces Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino and Sant’Antimo Rosso, which is a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. About 2,500 cases of Brunello are made annually. San Filippo Brunellos have won scores in the mid- to high-90s. Wine Advocate has written that “San Filippo is home to some of the best boutique Brunello today.”
