Winemaker Notes

Le Chiuse Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a deep ruby red with pleasant garnet hues. A brilliant wine. Very deep with a continuously evolution in its bouquet. The typical fragrant hints of wild cherry, the delicate sensations of violet surround a group of scents which make this wine enchanting and complex. Among the most important ones we remember are the mineral hints of flint, Indian ink, not too sweet spices, leather, tobacco and Amaretto. Great structure, fresh, alive and balanced, with thick and crunchy tannins which show its natural propensity to a long refining in the bottle. Elegant and very persistent.

Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2006 is recommended with red meat,roasts, every kind of game, stew, mature cheeses and all those dishes which have great sapidity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
Gripping in its tannic structure, this red is nonetheless centered on a core of sweet cherry, floral, mint and tobacco flavors. Shows a grace and fluidity, coursing through the finish with finesse and harmony. Ends with a fine mineral aftertaste. A picture of refinement and purity. Best from 2016 through 2038.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This beautiful Brunello opens with lavish tones of dark fruit, exotic spice, espresso bean and crushed black pepper. The mouthfeel is interesting because it starts off bold and rich, but ends with the focused or chiseled sharpness that is typical of Sangiovese Grosso.
JS 91
James Suckling
Intense aromas of dried strawberries and spices, with hints of dried flowers. Full body, with velvety tannins and a caressing finish. Bright acidity.

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.
