Winemaker Notes

Ruby red with light garnet hues. Intense scent with easy memories of blueberry, small fruits, black currant and cherry. It is easy to appreciate also notes of violet, mineral hints of flint and spicy scents. Great body and elegance. Neat with good complexity. In the mouth it shows all the character of a great wine, with good persistence, elegant and refined tannins.

Pair with: roasted meat and game, braised beef, and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
A dense and chewy young Brunello with cherry and dried berry character. A tangy citrus undertone to it all. Full and rich with a long finish. This will soften and impress better in 2014.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A pretty red, yet firmly structured, evoking bright cherry, strawberry, licorice and earth notes, all with a sweet-salty tang. Tightens up on the finish, with dusty tannins. Best from 2016 through 2029.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Le Chiuse delivers a consistent message with its wines year after year. It strives for clean, austere and territory-driven expressions of Sangiovese Grosso. This vintage is very true to the estate philosophy: You'll recognize wild berry, white cherry, rose petal, dried ginger and cola. You can count on it evolving nicely over the years.

Le Chiuse Winery Image
Located in North of Montalcino, the Le Chiuse estate lies on the north-east hillside of Montosoli. Le Chiuse played a key role in the vineyard holdings of the legendary Biondi-Santi family since the late 18th Century when they used these vineyards for their Riserva bottling. Handed down, generation to generation the current owner, Simonetta Valiani is the great granddaughter of Ferruccio Biondi-Santi. Simonetta regained full ownership of the property in 1993 when she decided to produce her own wine under the label “Brunello Le Chiuse” with her husband, Nicolò Magnelli and their son, Lorenzo. Until then, the vineyards were rented to her uncle, Franco Biondi-Santi, still used for their Riserva bottling. Together, the family restored the farmhouse buildings, the chapel, built a new underground-cellar and planted new vineyards with traditional methods necessary to produce classically styled Brunello di Montalcino.
