Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta DOCG

Named for a creek that flows nearby, there was never a more perfect name for a wine with such wonderfully plush tannins — seta means silky in Italian – and an elegance second to none. An excellent expression of high-altitude Montalcino wines, bright, structured, and warming, with generous aromas of wild strawberries, chocolate, and coffee.
