Filo di Seta is a unique Brunello that is the result of a rigorous selection of grapes harvested by hand in our vineyard near the Castello Romitorio.
Filo di Seta, which translates as Silk Thread, is the name of a creek that flows through the forest nearby.
94/100 Robert Parker
95/100 James SucklingWhat a nose: dark peony petals mix with violet and scented notes of both fresh and dried cherry. These aromas travel straight to the brain on a lifted note of polished wood. The same aromatic allure becomes immediately apparent on the palate: cherry and fragrant petals enrobe and cushion the fine but utterly taut tannins.
A very serious wine that poses a lovely counterpoint of poised structure and flowing, almost billowing elegance; stern and forgiving at once. Every nuance of aroma is illuminated by Sangiovese’s electric acidity. Even in age, when earthier, more savory notes come to the fore the floral, silky allure captures palate, mind and heart in one go.
