Le Filigare is the name of the hill, in San Donato in Poggio where the estate is located; The main village dates back to the 11th century. Today the estate is owned by the Cassetti Burchi family of Florence who, since the 1980s, continue to produce high quality wines with dedication and passion. The family business is led by his son Alessandro, who, since the 1990s, oversaw the renovation of the buildings and brought the wines and extra virgin olive oil to organic certification.
Intense full-bodied big dark ruby red wine. Strong and intense scent of black woodland fruits, leather and chocolate ending on balsamic notes of eucalyptus and damp earth. Powerful and elegant on the palate, warm, sustained tannins and a very long finish. Decades of aging potential.
