San Filippo was founded in Montalcino in 1972 and is owned by Roberto Ginnelli. The estate produces wines from four estate vineyards totalling only around 11ha of vines, primarily Sangiovese with some Merlot and Syrah. San Filippo's four vineyards include the northeast-facing sites Le Lucére and La Storta, the north-facing La Raffiche vineyard, and the southwest-exposed La Smarrita vineyard. Soils are composed of clay intermingled with marl and limestone. The estate's top Brunello is the Riserva from the Le Lucére vineyard. It is made from a selection of the best grapes and aged in wood for two years, then aged in bottle eight months.
