Overview

‘Filo di Seta,’ is a special Brunello that is the result of a very careful selection of the best harvest grapes collected from the vineyards just nearby the castle. Its name translated, means ‘Silk thread’, a name that takes its inspiration from a small river that runs next to the vineyards where it is produced. This wine seeks to be one of the highest expression of Montalcino’s northwest micro climate.

James Suckling 2015 - 98 points

It is ruby red with orange tinges it speaks of red berries with saline undertones which then turn to the scent of roses and crushed violets becoming impressive on the nose. The taste is dynamic and extremely pleasant. It is a full bodied wine embracing warm, soft tones and elegant, ultra fine tannins that build on the palate with a cool, sleek texture and style. The progression of its taste is astounding and has a long and powerful finish.
