Winemaker Notes

Intense garnet red in color, this wine offers an intriguing nose with an initial mix of licorice and juniper berries, followed by underbrush berries and balsamic notes. On the palate, the wine is supple and velvety, sapid and enveloping. The finish is extremely pleasant, persistent and spicy.

Pair with red meat, game and seasoned cheese.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Alluring aromas of wild berry, crushed blue flower, dried herb and exotic spice lead the way. The elegant linear palate doles out juicy black cherry, raspberry preserve, licorice and a hint of tobacco. It's well balanced, with taut fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Give this time to fully develop.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The wines from this estate are distinguished by their overall elegance and fine nature. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows its youth with tight aromas of forest fruit and wild cherry. This wine requires more bottle time before it starts to blossom. In the mouth, it delivers sultry and sophisticated notes of tobacco and campfire ash. The wine ages in Slavonian oak casks for 30 months.

James Suckling
Smoke, dried berry and orange peel follow through to a full body. Dried fruits at the finish. A little short but nice enough.

Gianni Brunelli Winery Image
Gianni Brunelli, a man of many interests, established Siena’s Osteria Le Logge (now one of the top restaurants of the city) in 1977. In 1987, he returned to Montalcino and purchased ‘Le Chiuse di Sotto,’ an estate that had belonged to his father Dino, with 2ha of vineyards standing at 200m above sea level in the northern part of the region. Brunelli replanted most of the vines in 1989, but left untouched a small plot of older holdings dating back to his father’s original 1947 plantings. After Gianni passed away in 2008, his wife Laura, who was already working at the estate, took the reins along with her brother, Adriano.

A few years ago, the estate expanded with the purchase of the ‘Podernovone’ vineyard, located further south in Montalcino. The 4ha property sits at 350m above sea level and has a magnificent view of Monte Amiata. Podernovone’s soil is comprised of calcareous-marl and schist, which reflects light and heat, leading to a warmer site. ‘Le Chiuse di Sotto,’ a 2ha plot, is cool and airy, bringing bright acidity to the blend. As with Pacenti, the Brunelli’s vineyard sites allow them to blend north and south to achieve great balance, no matter what the vintage brings.

Montalcino Wine

Tuscany, Italy

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
