San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino 1997

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The area of vineyards has been developed in the amphitheatre of the south facing hills of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, at 350-430m asl, a part of which are to be found quite near the wonderful Roman Basilica of Sant'Antimo, and the rest in the hill side slopes from Castelnuovo dell'Abate toward Orcia.
