San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucére 2017

$139

There is a tension between the strawberry and cherry fruit flavors in this red, which has a savory side, evoking wild Mediterranean herbs, tobacco and eucalyptus flavors. Dense, burly tannins underline it all and the finish is long and satisfying. Best from 2025 through 2043. 1,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
