Winemaker Notes

Intense, ruby red in color with garnet hues, this very aromatic wine shows violet, prune, pepper, spice and licorice on the nose. Full-bodied, savory with fruit and spices confirmed on this refined palate. Long and silky.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Aromas of iron and graphite lead off, segueing into cherry and strawberry flavors. This is firmly structured and tense, with a long, spice-, tobacco- and leather-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2026.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of mature plum, dark berry, leather and tobacco take shape in the glass. The big, ripe palate offers mature black cherry, cinnamon and anisette alongside round tannins.

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.

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.
